Payroll Giving

Payroll giving is a HM Customs & Revenue scheme that enables employees to donate tax free through their pay to any charity in the UK.

What are the benefits?

Payroll Giving (also known as ‘Give as You Earn’) is one of the most effective ways for you to support the Howard League for Penal Reform.

Payroll giving is simple to join and tax-free. This means for example, if you donate £4.00 in payroll giving per month from your salary your donation will actually be worth £5.00 to the Howard League for Penal Reform - and better still there’s no extra cost to you. Payroll giving is one of the easiest ways for employees to give regularly to charity – it’s simple, flexible and tax-efficient.  Employees choose how much they want to give each month (minimum £1), and the charities they want to support. The donation is then taken from their pay before tax, so it costs them less.
