Payroll Giving

Payroll giving is a cost effective way for individuals who are paid through PAYE to give to their favourite local good cause. It’s easy to give and you even get 20%* from the tax-man.

What is it?
Employees give to the local good cause of their choice through their pay at a rate affordable to them.

How easy is it?
Modern payroll giving software allows for pre-tax deductions. Some inputting initially by your payroll department is required for each employee. We are working with an HMRC approved payroll giving specialist and the total amount, once deducted, goes to The Charity Service for onwards distribution.

Why do it?
Payroll giving offers employees a tax efficient way of supporting their chosen local good cause.

Company Impact Through payroll giving you and your staff can make a real difference to Chelmsford good causes which will help your business meet its CSR responsibilities.

What schemes are available?

  • A regular monthly scheme based on pre-tax deductions
  • A Small Change = BIG CHANGE scheme allows employees to contribute the post‑tax pence from their pay each month
  • A Happy Hour scheme where employees donate just one hour’s pay at any point during the year is a great way to give collectively as a staff group

*20% unless you are a top rate tax payer and then you get immediate tax relief at whatever rate you pay.
