Payroll giving is an excellent way for employees to support the BTA tax efficiently.
It enables employees to give to charity straight from your gross salary (before tax is deducted). Through payroll giving, you can provide a regular, reliable income stream that allows us to budget, while benefiting you with generous tax relief.
How does it work?
Give to the BTA from your pay and you can get immediate tax relief of up to £4 for every £10 donated. The donations are taken from your gross salary, reducing the amount of income tax that is deducted from your salary.
What do you need to do?
All you need to do is ask your payroll department to deduct regular charitable donations from your salary by filling out a simple application form (available from your employer), stating how much you would like to give and to which charities. Your donations will show on your payslip.
If your employer does not already have a payroll giving scheme in place, don’t worry – it’s quick and easy to set up. Employers simply sign a contract with a payroll giving agency who will transmit donations on their behalf.
