PAYROLL GIVING

If your employer, company or personal pension provider runs a Payroll Giving scheme, you can donate straight from your wages or pension. This happens before tax is deducted from your  income meaning the tax you would otherwise pay is instead gifted to Amherst. For example, for Amherst to receive £20 per month, the deduction from your net pay would only be £16 for a basic rate taxpayer, £12 for a higher rate tax payer and £11 for an additional rate taxpayer.

Find out more at:

www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/donating-straight-from-your-wages-or-pension

Your employer will most probably use one of the following Payroll Scheme Agents to do this:

· Charities Aid Foundation

· Charities Trust

· Charitable Giving

Please contact your HR Department / Employer to set up payroll giving.

Please provide them with the following information:

· Charity: Amherst School (Academy) Trust

· Charity Number: EW09428

For us to keep track of this, please go to www.schoolgateway.com and indicate if

You have set Payroll Giving up through your employer.

 

 

OTHER WAYS TO CONTRIBUTE

Additional ways to contribute are detailed below. Some of these methods of contribution may also allow Gift Aid to be claimed by Amherst School as it is an exempt charity.

Donating through Gift Aid means that the school can claim an extra 25p for every £1 a UK taxpayer donates and if you pay tax above the basic rate, you may also be able to claim extra tax relief for yourself. A Gift Aid declaration will need to be completed.  Please refer to https://www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/gift-aid for further details.
