To help colleagues money go even further to support causes that matter to them, Barratt will be matching all new and existing donations throughout 2021.
What is Payroll Giving?
Because donations are deducted from pay before tax, the charity receives more than it actually costs to make a donation. For example, if you are a basic rate tax payer and make a £4 donation each month your charity receives £5 with the difference paid by HMRC. In the same way, a higher rate tax payer pays just £3 of a £5 donation.
Many Barratt employees already give to charity – using Payroll Giving they can make sure their charity gets even more support.
Which charities can I support?
We are working with ‘Payroll Giving in Action’ to help us with this.
Providing you are paid through PAYE, you can donate part of your pay directly to any national/local charity or ‘recognised good cause’ such as local sports clubs, Brownie / Cub packs, places of worship or schools.
You can choose more than one charity to donate to, and can easily change the amount or charity at any time.
If your chosen charity is not listed on this site you can still support them but you’ll need to know the charity number so there is no delay in forwarding on your donation. If there is a charity not listed that you think should be, please email email@example.com
What are the benefits of Payroll Giving?
The main benefit of Payroll Giving is that donations are tax free, making this one of the most cost-effective ways of giving money to charity.
Because donations are deducted from pay before tax, the charity receives more than it actually costs you to make a donation. For example, it costs a basic rate tax payer only £4 to make a £5 donation, since HMRC pays the rest. In the same way, a higher rate tax payer pays just £3 of a £5 donation.

Further InformationIf you have any questions or would like any assistance please call the Payroll Giving in Action helpline on 01271 344360.
The chosen HMRC registered Payroll Giving Agent will handle all monies donated through the scheme. A copy of the donation form you fill in is sent to the nominated Payroll Giving Agency so that when Group Payroll sends them your first donation they know who the donation is coming from and which charity to send it on to.
Please Note: Deductions from your pay will start in the month following submission and confirmation of your donation, provided this is by 1st of the month for Monthly paid and by 4th of the month for weekly paid.
