CAF Give As You Earn online: cause for celebration

Did you know CAF Give As You Earn is the largest Payroll Giving service in the UK? In the last year over £70 million has been donated to good causes – thank you to all of you for your commitment to Payroll Giving!

And it gets even better as we have now introduced CAF Give As You Earn online, which has significantly increased donations to worthy causes

Using the online version, one company saw the total amount of employee donations double compared to the previous year. We are proud to be supporting employees make an even greater impact on the charity sector.

Online is taking off with clients across a range of sectors including finance/banking, professional services, legal, aerospace and food and drink. CAF Give As You Earn online can help you manage your employee giving in a simpler and more efficient way – no matter what your sector or size!

A reminder of the benefits of signing up:

  • Employee sign up in less than 3 minutes – no paper forms required; greater accuracy and efficiency for all
  • Secure data transfer via your dedicated employer portal - removing a lot of manual administration at payroll level and reducing paperwork.
  • No more paper forms to process - employee deduction files for your payroll administrator and the instruction files for our processing team are provided at the same time
