Payroll Giving

   

 

Two of the easiest ways to give a regular donation to the Child Bereavement Charity are to instruct your bank to make a regular payment on your behalf or to donate through Give As You Earn.

Payroll Giving (AKA Give As You Earn)

If you earn a salary, or if your pension is paid via PAYE, making a commitment to giving doesn't get any simpler than this.

How does it work? You can give directly from your pre-tax salary, so money that would normally go to the taxman goes to charity instead. You just decide how much you want to give Child Bereavement Charity each month – it could be a couple of pounds, or tens, hundreds as much as you can afford. Then your donation comes out of your pay packet before the taxman touches it.

What are the benefits? You benefit because you don’t pay any tax on the donations you make. If you’re a basic rate taxpayer, a gift of £6.41 only actually costs you £5 (nb sometimes taxrates change and we don't update this immediately, so please check numbers for yourself, but the principle holds true) – so you can pass the tax relief on to Child Bereavement Charity.

How do I give? Setting up a scheme is easy, and the costs are minimal. Employees simply authorise their payroll department to deduct their donation from their regular pay packet. And because the deductions are made before tax, employees get the tax relief straight away.
