How much can I donate?
You control how much you want to give. There is no minimum or maximum amount.
If you pay basic 20% tax rate, for every £1 that you earn, 20p is paid in tax. That means if you pledge £10 a month, only £8 will be deducted from your net pay but the charity will receive the full £10.
If you pay higher rate income tax at 40%, you can pledge £10 a month and only £6 will be deducted from your net pay, and at the highest rate of 45%, only £5.50 would be deducted. NB it is more efficient for higher rate taxpayers to donate through Payroll Giving than Gift Aid as charities are unable to claim back tax above the basic rate through the Gift Aid scheme.
The income tax applicable to the donation is paid to the British Liver Trust instead of HMRC.

How do I set up Payroll Giving so I can donate to the British Liver Trust?
The first step is to check with your HR team to make sure your company offers Payroll Giving. If they do, they will arrange your donation through your salary for you.
If your employer does not currently offer Payroll Giving, you could encourage them to set it up. To set up a Payroll Giving scheme, your employer will just need to register with an approved Payroll Giving agency.
If your circumstances change and you want to change or cancel your donation at any time, simply tell your employer. If you change your job, your donations will not be transferred to your new employer, so you will need to start a new Payroll Giving scheme with them.
