Donating through your salary (Payroll giving) is a simple, tax-effective way to donate to Epilepsy Action directly from your salary. The scheme works by deducting your donation from your gross salary (before tax) – so every £1 you give will only cost you 80p (or 60p if you’re a higher rate tax payer). This means that your gift will go even further, supporting more people affected by epilepsy when they need it most.
You can donate as much as you like and you can stop your donation at any time.
Payroll giving for employees
Setting up a donation from your salary is easy – just simply complete the online form and submit. Every time you’re paid, your payroll Department will deduct the agreed amount from your salary and send it directly to us.
Payroll giving for employers
Setting up a payroll giving scheme is an excellent way for your company to support the causes that your employees care about. You can also match donations to support your corporate and social responsibility programme.
To offer the scheme to your employees you need to be registered with a Payroll Giving Agency (PGA). Its free and simple to set up. To find out more visit the HMRC website.
Payroll giving is available to everyone who pays UK income tax and is employed by a UK organisation.
