To Make a Regular Monthly Donation
This link takes you to the Just Giving website where you can chose to donate any amount, just select “make a monthly donation” on the top right hand side of the page, your donation is much appreciated and will help us in “looking forward to seeing the back of MS”.
Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice.
Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you’re a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p or:
A £10 donation to us only costs you:
£8 at basic rate tax (20%)
£6 at higher rate tax (40%)
£5.50 at the 45% rate
Payroll Giving (also known as Give As You Earn or workplace giving) is a valuable, long term source of revenue, providing regular income to help charities budget and plan ahead more effectively. Employees can choose to support any charity of their choice with a regular donation direct from their pay.
Its cheaper because its tax free – for example, a donation of £5 per month costs the basic rate tax payer £4.00 (the taxman pays the rest!)
Higher rate taxpayers- the only way to pass on your 40% or 45% tax to charities. Only 28% can be recouped via other ways of giving.
Don’t forget Gift Aid
Gift Aid increases the value of your donations and means charities can benefit even more at no extra cost to you.
If you’re a UK taxpayer and earn over the current £10,000 per annum threshold you can add Gift Aid whenever you make a donation and MS Research can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift amounting to an extra 25p for every £1 you give.
Higher rate tax payers can claim additional tax benefits for donations they make to charity, which you can keep or pass on to any charitable organisation. Simply indicate how much you have donated when completing your tax self-assessment form.
