About making a donation
Give as you earn
Employers may offer Payroll Giving before tax has been deducted. The tax relief goes directly to the Charity chosen by the employee.
Key facts about the Payroll Giving scheme
It is a flexible scheme that allows donors to make charitable donations straight from their gross salary (before tax is deducted). For example, for a basic rate taxpayer to give £10.00, only £8.00 will be deducted from his or her pay. For a higher rate taxpayer, the deduction will be £6.00.
The employer passes on the charitable donation to a Payroll Giving agency, which in turn will make payment to the charity chosen by the employee.
Furthermore, many employers are encouraging the scheme by matching their employees’ donations.
Please advise your Gift Aid organiser or Parish Accountant should you join a Payroll Giving scheme. It will enable a check to be made that your parish or the diocese is receiving the donation.
Payroll giving does not require the donor/employee to complete a Gift Aid donation, since the income tax has been dealt with at source.
