Lightening the load
The Payroll Giving Agent is there to make your payroll department’s work easier by distributing donations to your employees’ chosen charities. Your payroll department sends one monthly payment to the Agent – even if your employees are paid weekly.
Your payroll department sets up deductions for employees taking part – like a pension deduction. These are made before tax but after NI deduction. Payroll sends donations to the Payroll Giving Agent monthly, who sends them to the chosen charities.
Your payroll department will need to send the Agent a list of employees taking part with the monthly payments, detailing how much they are giving. They also need to notify them if someone leaves the company and their donation has stopped.
On average it takes about 10 minutes per month for your payroll department to administer Workplace Giving.
