GAYE

The University operates a Give As You Earn (GAYE) scheme through the Charites Aid Foundation (CAF).

The scheme enables employees to make charitable donations to their chosen charity or charities, through payroll, before the calculation of tax, therefore attracting tax relief at their marginal rate of tax.


For example making a £20 donation to charity:     

As a 20% taxpayer:  

Total donated to charity

£20.00

You pay

£16.00

Reduction in tax

£4.00

     

As a 40% taxpayer:     

Total donated to charity

£20.00

You pay

£12.00

Reduction in tax

£8.00

 

To set up a donation employees must complete a GAYE donor instruction form and send to salaries for processing, normal monthly payroll deadlines apply, please see link to cut off dates below.
