Decide how much you want to give, remember because it’s a pre-tax deduction you can afford to give more-see below for a table of amounts. Choose a charity and fill in a form online or print and post.
Your payroll department starts deductions (this can take up to 6 weeks to take affect), and your companies chosen Payroll Giving Agency gets a copy of your form so they can make sure your donation goes to the right charity.
Your chosen charity receives your regular donation hassle free with minimum admin costs. Your regular Payroll Giving donations enable your charity to confidently plan and budget. Most charities also send you a thank you letter and keep you up to date with the good causes you are helping (if you want them to).
Since Payroll Giving donations are pre-tax the amount you donate actually costs you less. See the table below for how much your charity receives compared to how much it will cost you:
|You Donate||Costs you on basic (20%) tax||Costs you on higher (40%) tax||Costs you on 45% tax|
