News and blogs Latest news Give as you earn with payroll giving Did you know that, as an employee, you can make tax free donations to Excellent Development? The scheme is called Payroll Giving, or Give As You Earn. When you donate to Excellent directly from your salary, we receive the tax on this donation too. So, as a basic rate tax payer, a donation of £10 per month will actually only cost you £8.00. This is a highly effective way for you and your colleagues to help us bring water and food security to some of the poorest and driest areas of the world. If your company doesn’t yet have a Corporate Social Responsibility policy – here’s a great way to get it started! Your collective effort can make a big difference. For more information about how to set up Payroll Giving and how it works, you can visit the HMRC website.
