Payroll Giving Payroll Giving is very simply a tax-free charitable giving that comes directly from your pay. Payroll giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 donated will only cost 80p, and for higher rate tax payers it costs just 60p. Providing that your company offers Payroll Giving, to sign up involves completed a form which is normally obtained from the Payroll Department or Personnel. The employer should forward completed forms to the Payroll Giving Agency and deduct from pre-tax salary the total given. The donation is forwarded monthly to the Payroll Giving Agency and they then distribute the gift each month to the Children's Bereavement Centre. Setting up a Payroll Giving Scheme is easy to set up. Employers simply need to sign a contact with a Payroll Giving Agency. This is a legal requirement and provides an audit trail for HM Revenue & Customs as tax relief is being given on the gift.
