Giving a donation directly from your salary each month, also known as Payroll Giving, is a very tax efficient way to do good.
How Payroll Giving works
Payroll Giving allows you to make regular donations to Ormiston Families directly from your pay packet or occupational pension.
Your donations are made before Income Tax is deducted.
This means that you are given tax relief on your donation immediately – and at your highest rate of tax.
So, if, for example, you pledge £5 a month, Ormiston Families gets £5 a month to help deliver our important work. However, you will only see £4 deducted from your salary if you pay tax at the standard tax rate, or £3 if you pay tax at the higher tax rate.
Who can use Payroll Giving?
You can use Payroll Giving if both of the following apply:
- You are an employee or you get an occupational pension and your employer/pension provider deducts tax through the PAYE system
- Your employer or pension provider operates a Payroll Giving scheme
How do you start Payroll Giving?
Most employers who operate a Payroll Giving scheme will have a form for you to complete to authorise the donations to be deducted from your regular pay.
