If you are in regular paid employment and paying income tax (PAYE) you can increase the value of your donation through Payroll Giving. The donation is made before the deduction of Pay As You Earn tax – you get tax relief straight away and we get an additional 10 per cent from the Government.
Payroll Giving: give as you earn
Payroll Giving is a simple way of making tax-efficient donations to the Child Poverty Action Group. If you are in regular paid employment and paying income tax (PAYE) you automatically get tax relief if you make a regular donation. There is no lower or upper limit on how much you can give and you can stop giving at any time.
Your donation is made before the deduction of income tax. If you pay tax at the basic rate, giving £5 a month to the Child Poverty Action Group will cost you only £3.90 because you save £1.10 income tax. If you pay tax at the higher rate, giving £5 will cost you only £3 because you save £2 tax.
You do not need to tell your employer which charity you choose to support and you can ask for your name and address not to be passed on to us (although we would ,of course, like to write to you to thank you for your support).
There is one simple form to complete. All you will need to do is give it to your personnel or payroll department and they will do the rest.
If your employer does not currently have a payroll giving scheme, it is easy to set one up and need not cost anything. If you are an employer, see our company giving page. For more information about the Payroll Giving scheme see the Inland Revenue website.
