Payroll Giving

It's Easy to Give with Payroll Giving


What is Payroll Giving?

Payroll giving is a simple, tax-effective way to give to any UK-based charity from your pay.

How Does It Work?

Once authorised, A.F. Blakemore's Payroll department deducts regular charitable donations from your pay. Your donation is then sent to Charities Trust, which is approved by HM Revenue and Customs as a charity agency. The agency then distributes the money to the charity or charities of your choice.

What Are the Benefits?

Not only is payroll giving super simple, but it’s also super tax effective because your donation gets deducted before you pay the taxman. For instance, if you donate £5, only £4 comes out of your salary and the taxman pays the rest.

You donate £5.00 £7.50 £10.00
Cost to you as a 20% tax payer £4.00 £6.00 £8.00
Cost to you as a 40% tax payer £3.00 £4.50 £6.00

Which Charities Can I Support?

Donations can be made to any national/local charity or recognised good cause such as places of worship, schools and scout groups.

You can nominate more than one charity to benefit from your donations – and you can easily change the amount or nominated charities at any time. 

How Do I Donate?

A.F. Blakemore has set up an online platform for payroll giving to make it as easy as possible for employees to donate.
