Payroll Giving is an easy, tax-free way to make a regular donation straight from your salary. And, because it’s tax-free, it costs you less to give more to Bobath Scotland.
Payroll Giving ensures that your employer deducts your donation from your salary each week or month before tax. As tax has not been deducted from it, your donation will be worth more than the amount you have paid.
An example: if you want to give us a £10 monthly donation, the actual cost to you would be only £8 if you pay tax at the basic rate of 20%, while it would be only £6 if you pay tax at the higher rate of 40%. Some employers even offer 'matched giving' schemes, where they add to your donation, helping us even more at no extra cost to you.
You can donate through Payroll Giving so long as you get paid weekly or monthly through PAYE and your employer runs a Payroll Giving scheme. You can make your donations anonymously if you prefer, and there is no need for your employer to find out which charities you support if you wish to keep it private, as the forms are processed externally. The government website, http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/individuals/giving/payroll.htm, has more information on Payroll Giving.
Because your donation is worth more, Payroll Giving allows us to help more children with cerebral palsy. So please consider taking advantage of this tax efficient way of helping, and start giving from your payroll today.
