What is payroll giving?

Very simply it is tax-free charitable giving direct from your pay.

Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you’re a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p.

How do you give to The Children’s Bereavement Centre through payroll giving?

Providing that your employer offers Payroll Giving it could not be simpler. You should complete a form which is usually obtained from your Payroll Department or Personnel.

Your employer will forward your completed form to the Payroll Giving Agency and deduct from your pre-tax salary the total amount you want to give. Your donation is forwarded monthly to the Payroll Giving Agency and they then distribute the gift each month to The Children’s Bereavement Centre.

If your employer does not already have a Payroll Giving scheme in place, it is easy to set up. Employers simply need to sign a contract with a Payroll Giving Agency. This is a legal requirement and provides an audit trail for HM Revenue and Customs because you are getting tax relief on your gift.
