Payroll giving is an easy, tax effective way in which you can make a regular donation to help us provide vital services to older people in need.
It enables you to give to Age UK Hammersmith and Fulham straight from your gross salary or pension (before tax is deducted), giving immediate tax relief on those donations.
For every £1 that you earn, currently 22p is paid in tax if you pay the basic tax rate. If you pledge £10 a month, we receive the full amount with only £7.80 actually being deducted from your net pay.
If you pay income tax at the higher rate of 40%, currently only £6.00 would be deducted from your net pay.
Charities are unable to claim back higher rate tax through the Gift Aid scheme and so receiving money from people in this way means we get more.
To become a donor, simply tell your payroll department the amount you would like to give from your salary and they will do the rest. Alternatively, if your employer doesn’t have a payroll giving scheme then do get in touch with us to discuss.
There is no long-term commitment to payroll giving; should your circumstances change and you no longer wish to donate to us, simply tell your employer.
Also, if you should change your job, your donations will not be able to be transferred to your new employer. You will need to start a new payroll giving scheme.
