What is Payroll Giving?
Payroll Giving is a scheme that enables you to give to any UK charity straight from your gross salary (before tax is deducted), and to receive immediate tax relief of up to £4 for every £10 donated.

Why give through the payroll?
Payroll Giving is an easy, tax-effective way to give to the North East Autism Society, so it costs you less to give more. Payroll donations provide us with a regular, reliable income stream that enables us to plan and budget for the future. Another important factor is that we don't have to spend on raising money if we can depend upon your gift being received automatically.

Which charities can I give to?
You can give to any UK charity through the payroll but we hope you will consider the North East Autism Society for your gift. All you will have to do is fill in a brief form with the amount you want to give and pass this to your payroll department. (This presumes your employer has signed up for payroll giving).
