Payroll Giving

Watch our video on Payroll Giving and see how it helps charities, employee's and employers:


Payroll Giving is Tax efficient and hassle-free.

SmartGiving is an HMRC recognised Payroll Giving agency.

Our scheme makes it easier for you to give tax free regular donations to the charities of your choice direct from your pay.

Giving this way means your donation can be boosted by up to 45% enabling your charity to plan better for the future and reduce its administration costs.  If you gift £10 from your take home pay this will be boosted to £16.66 if you are a 40% rate tax payer and £12.50 if you are a basic rate taxpayer.

You can find out how much your charity will receive from your donation through the table below.

You give from your take home pay CHARITY RECEIVES From your pre-tax pay (20%) For salaries up to £41,865 CHARITY RECEIVES From your pre-tax pay (40%) For salaries over £41,866 CHARITY RECEIVES From your pre-tax pay (45%) For salaries over £150,000
