How can I help Roshni?
We are asking you to contribute to us on a regular basis through Payroll Giving. HMRC Website
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 £5 for every £10 donated (depending on the highest rate at which you pay tax).
|Employee Pledges||Cost to standard rate taxpayer||Cost to higher rate taxpayer||Cost to additional rate taxpayer|
|£5.00 per month||£4.00||£3.00||£2.50|
|£8.00 per month||£6.40||£4.80||£4.00|
|£10.00 per month||£8.00||£6.00||£5.00|
|£15.00 per month||£12.00||£9.00||£7.50|
NB:Most Payroll Giving Agencies deduct a small charge from the donations to cover administrative costs- up to about 4 per cent is usual. They distribute what’s left to us.
Payroll Giving is an easy, tax-effective way to give, so it costs you less to give more. Payroll donations are great for us and any other charities you donate to as they provide a regular, reliable income stream that enables us to plan and budget for the future.
What do I need to do?
Provided that your employer offers Payroll Giving it could not be simpler. You complete a form which is usually obtained from your Payroll Department or Personnel, and select us as the charity you would like to support. There is space on the form for selecting more than one charity.
After that, all administration is carried out by your employer and the Payroll Giving Agency with which your employer is registered. You don’t have to do anything else.
Your employer will forward your completed form to the Payroll Giving Agency and deduct from your pre-tax salary the total amount you want to give. Your donation is forwarded monthly to the Payroll Giving agency and they then distribute the gift each month to us and any other charities you have selected.
What if my employer is not registered for Payroll Giving?
If your employer does not already have a Payroll Giving scheme in place, don’t worry, it’s quick and easy for them to set up.
Employers simply need to sign a contract with an approved Payroll Giving Agency, who operate the schemes on a charitable basis. There’s little in the way of cost and administration for employers and they will probably be able to adapt their existing payroll system to operate the scheme.

How will you know what Roshni does with your donation?
If you want them to, Roshni will send you information about their general activities and any specific work for which your contributions are used.
