Payroll Giving donations are tax-free and are paid directly through salary, Payroll Giving, is the most tax-efficient way to give.  Payroll Giving donations are taken from pay after National Insurance but before tax. A donation of £5 a month would cost an employee £4 from their take-home pay (if they pay 20% tax) or £3 (if they pay 40% tax).

Payroll giving is a sustainable income stream for YAA and this regular income will not only help us save more lives across Yorkshire, but also helps the charity to plan into the future.
