Sort code: 60-04-04
Give through your employer's Payroll Giving scheme, if one is available. See below: "Tax-Efficient Giving".
Tax Efficient Giving
UK tax payers:
If you are a UK tax payer (Income or Capital Gains Tax) and would like us to be able to claim back the basic rate tax through the government's Gift Aid scheme, you will need to make a Gift Aid declaration to us. The easiest way to do this is through the giving form above (under 'Give Now').
Alternatively, please fill in, sign and return to us an ongoing Gift Aid declaration.
This allows us to reclaim 25p for every £1 given, at no extra cost to you.
Higher rate UK tax payers
If you pay higher or additional rate tax, you may recover this through your own tax return. Alternatively, you may pass on this extra tax to Alpha by giving via your employer's payroll giving scheme.
Giving via Payroll Giving means you give 'pre-tax'. You can therefore pass on the full benefit of your tax to Alpha immediately.
For Higher Rate and Additional Rate taxpayers, this increases your charitable donation by the amount of the tax you would have paid on the donation if you’d kept it as income - 67% or 82% respectively, an increase of 33% and 45% over Gift Aid.
If you are a Basic Rate taxpayer, Payroll Giving would increase your donations by 25%, which is the same as a Gift Aid declaration.
