Payroll giving with CAF Give As You Earn

A flexible tax-effective way
to get money to charity

If you want to give to a particular charity on a regular basis, payroll giving is a great option. Your donation is taken from your pre-tax salary, meaning that part of your donation comes from money that would have otherwise gone to HMRC. Donating this way allows you give even more to your favourite charity and to ensure it receives regular financial support. You can use this scheme to give to any charity recognised by HMRC for tax purposes.

For example making a £20 donation to charity:

As a 20% taxpayer:  
Total donated to charity £20.00
You pay £16.00
Reduction in tax £4.00

As a 40% taxpayer:  
Total donated to charity £20.00
You pay £12.00
Reduction in tax £8.00
