Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving, sometimes known as 'Give As You Earn', is a great way to support Yorkshire Wildlife Trust - and it's tax free, making your donation go even further.

How Payroll Giving works

Payroll Giving allows you to make donations to charity directly from your pay or company/personal pension. The donations are made after your National Insurance contributions are calculated but before Income Tax is worked out and deducted. Because of this, you only pay tax on what's left. This means that you get tax relief on your donation immediately - and at your highest rate of tax.

So if you pay tax at the basic rate of 20 per cent and authorise a monthly donation of £10, you will save £2 tax (20 per cent of £10) and so the charity will receive £10 but the actual cost of the donation to you is £8.

If pay tax at the higher rate of 40 per cent and authorise a monthly donation of £10, you will save £4 (40 per cent of £10) and so the charity will receive £10 but the actual cost of the donation to you is £6.

Can I sign up?

You can use Payroll Giving if:

  • you are an employee and you get paid weekly or monthly through PAYE
  • you get a company and/or personal pension and your provider deducts tax through PAYE
  • your employer or pension provider runs a Payroll Giving Scheme

What do I need to do?

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust have no control over Payroll Giving, you have to authorise your employer or pension provider to deduct a set amount from your salary or pension provider.  You can find out more on the HM Revenue & Customs website.
