What is payroll giving?
Payroll giving is a voluntary scheme to help you support charities of choice by giving directly from your pay. Employees in participating companies donate to their chosen community organisation which has been given approved 'donee' status by Inland Revenue. Community Arts Palmerston North is now an approved donee organisation.
What does ‘an approved donee organisation’ mean?
We are registered with the Charities Commission and our registration shows that donations are a source of income. This registration has been approved by the Inland Revenue. You can check this out by going to: www.ird.govt.nz/donee-organisations/
What are the benefits of payroll giving?
Payroll giving makes it easier to give. If you are donating through payroll giving you won’t need to retain receipts and wait to file an annual claim form to get your donation tax credit. Each payday, when you make your donation through payroll you will receive an immediate 33.33 percent tax credit via PAYE on the donation. For example, if $15 is donated, it will cost you $10.00.
Payroll giving also works for employers and their communities. By enabling payroll giving, businesses demonstrate their commitment to their customers, clients and communities in a practical way. 'Sustainable Business' is increasingly about commitment to social responsibility.
How can I get my organisation to become involved in payroll giving?
Ask them! As an employer, they are obliged to offer the payroll giving scheme to employees before any other steps are taken. Community Arts PN is happy to come in and talk to employers about the Project, if the information on this site is insufficient.
