We can help you to set up a Payroll Giving scheme so that your staff can donate directly from their salary before tax.
Payroll Giving enables a basic rate tax payer to tax relief of £2 on every £10 donated, meaning that a £10 donation only actually costs them £8.
If your company already has a Payroll Giving scheme in place, we can give a talk to your staff to encourage them to give to DDVSAS through the scheme.
