How does payroll giving work?

Charitable donations are convenient, easy and automatic. Via PayCaptain’s mobile payroll app homepage, employees simply tap the “Charity Donations” tile, select their chosen cause and enter how much they wish to donate. Once set up, donations are deducted from payroll before tax is applied, reducing an employee’s taxable income and making charitable giving more cost-effective.

Payroll giving is processed by the payroll giving agency and distributed to the designated charity with the full value of donations forwarded pre-tax, so the charities receive the full amount regardless of the employees’ tax bracket. Tax relief is applied immediately, maximising the contributions and speeding up the delivery of the full payment to the designated charity.
