Payroll Giving – Information for Employers and pension providers
Payroll Giving is an easy way for your employees to make regular donations to charity directly from their pay.
People who receive their company/personal pension through PAYE (Pay As You Earn) can participate too.
Payments that your employees make through a Payroll Giving Scheme are deducted from their pay before tax is deducted. This means that employees are given tax relief on their donation immediately – and at their highest rate of tax.
It’s easy to set up a Payroll Giving Scheme for your business. There’s little in the way of cost and administration, and you’ll probably be able to adapt your existing payroll system to operate the scheme.
Find out more at www.hmrc.gov.uk.
Why not consider matching your employee’s donations and sponsorship efforts for our cause? It’s a simple, yet motivational way of rewarding their efforts and building loyalty.
If you would like more information about encouraging your employees to donate to us via payroll giving, please do not hesitate to email or call Katherine Leadbeter on +44 (0)191 443 4563.
