Payroll Giving, introduced in New Zealand January 2010, is a 'give-as-you-earn' scheme which offers employees the opportunity to support The Mission each pay day. Your donation is simply deducted from your regular pay cheque.
The tax benefit of your donation is applied immediately, with a 33.33% tax rebate each pay period. All deductions, credits and donations are managed automatically through your employer's payroll system. For each $15.00 that you donate there is an actual cost to you of $10.00 but The Mission, as beneficiary, receive the total amount of $15.00.
There is no requirement to receipt claims at the end of each year and The Mission, as your chosen charity, directly benefits from your donation each month.
Payroll Giving is an entirely voluntary scheme, both for employees and employers. Currently there are over 18,000 organisations registered on the approved charities list. We hope that your workplace will agree to participate with Payroll Giving and consider The Mission your charity of choice.
Further detailed information for both employees and employers is available in the sidebar to the right. You can also head to the Inland Revenue website for more information regarding the Payroll Giving scheme.
