What is Payroll Giving and how does it work?

Payroll Giving, also known as Give As You Earn, is a HM Revenue & Customs scheme that enables employees to donate tax free through their pay to any charity in the UK.

On each payday, an amount of your choice is deducted by your payroll department and sent to Sight Support Derbyshire. Your donations are taken before tax, meaning that for every £1 you give it will only cost you 80p (60p if you are a higher rate tax payer) – the taxman will pay the rest.

What are the benefits for employees?

Payroll giving is an easy, tax-effective way to give to charity – so it costs employees less to give more. For example, if you want Sight Support Derbyshire to receive £10 every month and you pay the basic tax rate, it will only cost you £8 as the gift comes out before you are taxed. The system is flexible, giving you full control as your gift is arranged through your own workplace payroll department.

What are the benefits for employers?

Payroll giving is a great way for companies to demonstrate commitment to the causes that their employees care about. It is quick and easy to set-up and administer and in the UK over 10,000 employers operate the scheme. Payroll giving can also aid retention and recruitment of staff, and enable them to generate a sustainable income stream to charities.
