Back in 2000 a member of staff asked whether Taylor Wessing LLP offered a Workplace Giving scheme – they didn’t, but this one request now means that they operate the most successful scheme in the legal sector, with 25% of their workplace taking part.

It was also clear that within this busy working environment it would be very difficult for employees to come to a presentation or visit us in their staff restaurant, we therefore visit Taylor Wessing staff within their offices.

As you can imagine in a large law firm like Taylor Wessing there are many higher rate taxpayers and it is very rewarding to be able to give them some advice that they weren’t aware of – that Workplace Giving is the only way that a 40% taxpayer can automatically give all their tax on a donation to charity.

“Giving colleagues a simple, easy and effortless opportunity to speak with a Workplace Giving UK Advisor at their desk has proved to be the most efficient way to promote our scheme. We have always found the Advisors to be low-key, professional and polite in their approach, consequently our employees response and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.”
