Donating a portion of your salary is one of the most efficient, tax-effective ways to support a charity.  Choose Spread a Smile and you can help us spread smiles every payday.   Setting up Payroll Giving is quick and simple.  Each payday, your employer will take your chosen donation from your gross salary.  The donation is taken after National Insurance is deducted, but before tax.  This means that your donation will cost up to 45% less through the tax break, dependent on your tax bracket. Find out more on the HMRC website.  Please note that Payroll Giving is only available for salaried PAYE employees.
