Payroll Giving

Easy and Effective Giving

Account Description & Benefits

Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax-free basis to the charities and good of their choice.

As the government web-site shows

“Payroll Giving (also known as Give As You Earn or Workplace Giving) is a valuable, long-term source of revenue, providing regular income to help charities budget and plan ahead more effectively. Employees can choose to support any charity of their choice with a regular donation direct from their pay.

It’s cheaper because it’s tax-free – for example, a donation of £5 per month costs the basic rate tax payer only £4.00 (the taxman pays the rest!)”

In practice, Payroll Giving donations are deducted from your salary by your employer before tax is deducted but after the National Insurance deduction. It is sent directly to AAC.

If you are a lower rate tax payer each £1 donation will only cost you effectively 80p.

If you are a higher rate tax payer each £1 donation will only cost you 60p.
