Give as you earn

The payroll giving scheme or "Give As You Earn", is a simple, tax effective way to give to charity directly from your pay.

You decide how much you want to give and your employer deducts the donation out of your pay every month or week. Surveys show that each month around two thirds of us give to charity so, if you can spare just £2 a month, it will make a big difference to our small charity.

How does it work?

Providing that your employer offers a Give As You Earn scheme it couldn’t be simpler. You authorise your employer to deduct regular charitable donations from your pay. Your employer then pays those donations to a Payroll Giving Agency approved by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). The agency then distributes the money to the charity of your choice.

If your employer does not yet offer a scheme, you could always suggest that they start one - it is easy and inexpensive to run. They can find out more about how to get started in the HMRC Payroll Giving guidelines.

What are the benefits as an employee?

You decide on the amount to give and can stop at any time if your circumstances change. You also have the confidence knowing that your donation goes directly to our charity with a minimum of administration costs.

The agreed deductions your employer makes from your pay are made before you pay tax, which means that you get tax relief included in your donation at your top rate of tax - and it’s simple to do!

What are the benefits as an employer?

By embracing payroll giving, a company demonstrates that it is community-minded and can enhance the organisation's images plus show the caring side of business to the community, employees and shareholders.
