If your employer offers it, making donations directly from your salary (also known as payroll giving) is an easy way to give that guarantees us regular donations.
Payroll giving differs from Gift Aid in that you get all the tax relief on your donation, instead of the 20% basic rate being repaid to the charity. The money is deducted from your salary before tax, so basic taxpayers pay only 80p for every pound donated, whilst higher rate tax payers pay only 60p, and top rate tax payers just 55p.
Before setting it up you must first check that your employer offers a payroll giving scheme. Once you have enrolled with the scheme an agreed amount is deducted from your salary each month and paid to a payroll giving agency who administers the scheme on the employer’s behalf. All the agency needs is our account number: 95809147 and sort code: 60-23-09.
