Payroll giving

Payroll Giving (also known as Give As You Earn) is a way for employees to make regular payments to a charity directly from their pay. People who receive their company/personal pension through PAYE (Pay As You Earn) can participate too.

Payments that employees make through a Payroll Giving Scheme are deducted from their pay before tax is deducted. This means that employees are given tax relief on their donation immediately - and at their highest rate of tax.
