Giving direct from your pay is tax free and helps The Youth Agency make concrete plans for the future. If you pledge £10 from your gross salary each month, it will only cost you £7.80, but the Youth Agency receives £10 thanks to the Inland Revenue
You can join the Give As You Earn scheme if your salary or pension is taxed through PAYE and your employer offers a GAYE scheme. All you need to do is:
- check with your payroll department that your company offers the scheme,
- decide how much you would like to give each pay day,
- complete and return your Give As You Earn form
If your employer hasn’t yet signed up to the payroll giving scheme, why don’t you suggest it, you can visit the Geared For Giving website to find out more about how Payroll Giving can help.
