Payroll Giving

Giving through your pay or pension to charity

If you pay tax through PAYE, Payroll Giving offers a way to reduce the cost to you of making regular gifts. If your employer or company/personal pension provider runs a Payroll Giving Scheme, you can authorise them to make the donation from your wages or pension before deducting any tax. You complete a form for the Payroll Giving agency to tell them where to send your donations.

These donations are made after your National Insurance contributions are calculated but before Income Tax is deducted. You only pay tax on the balance and get tax relief immediately on your donation, at your highest rate of tax.

Payroll giving does not affect any other donations you make to charity and do not need to be entered on your Self Assessment tax return.
