Employers in line for Payroll Giving grants
The Home Office has launched a new UK-wide grants programme to encourage employers to set up a Payroll Giving scheme.
It will give employers with fewer than 500 staff a cash incentive of up to £500 and match the first £10 donated by each employee, every month, for a period of six months.
The scheme enables employees to give to charity straight from their gross salary and to get immediate tax relief of up to 40% of each donation.
