What is payroll giving?
Payroll giving (also known as ‘Give As You Earn’) is an easy way for employees to give regularly to a charity such as the Smith-Magenis Syndrome Foundation UK.
How does it work?
Every time you’re paid, a donation amount of your choice is taken from your pay before tax is deducted. So, if you pledge to donate £5 per month, it would actually only cost you £4 if you pay tax at 20%, or £3 per month if you pay tax at 40%.
Setting up payroll giving is easy. You just need to let your HR/Payroll team know that you’d like to make a regular payroll giving donation to the Smith-Magenis Syndrome Foundation UK (Charity Number 1186647).
What are the benefits?
As donations are automatically deducted before tax is calculated, it is one of the most simple and tax-efficient ways of giving to us. Once your employer confirms your payroll giving arrangement has been set up, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that a regular donation is being made, in your name, to the Smith-Magenis Syndrome Foundation UK – and you won’t have to do anything more.
It’s especially helpful to us because your donation automatically includes tax relief so we don’t need to claim Gift Aid. The only way that higher rate taxpayers can automatically pass their tax to charity is through Payroll Giving, meaning you’re able to give more to charity, at a lower cost to you.
Your regular contribution will mean that we can plan well into the future and make sure we can continue to provide vital services to all families living with SMS who need us the most.
