Payroll Giving Scheme
DMU has just introduced a scheme which enables you to donate to your favourite charities in the most tax efficient way by having a deduction made directly from your salary.
You can choose to donate to as many charities as you wish through a regular monthly deduction from salary. If you give to charity in this way, your chosen charity would automatically receive the tax you would normally pay at your marginal rate without having to claim it back. If you are a 40% tax payer, then this is the only way your charity can benefit from the full amount of tax.
For example, for a £5 per month donation, the actual cost to you will be £4 if you are a 20% tax payer, or £3 if you are a higher rate tax payer, i.e. less than £1 a week.
The only requirements are that the charity is registered in the UK.
If you have any queries relating to this information, please contact Sue Coupland (Payroll Manager) firstname.lastname@example.org or Rachel Barbrook (HR Services Team Manager) email@example.com
