Payroll Giving allows you to make a donation to a charity directly from your pay or pension. The payment is made after National Insurance contributions, but before Income Tax. This means that you get tax relief on your donation immediately.
Should you wish to make a donation by payroll giving, you can authorise your employer or pension provider to deduct a set amount from your salary or pension income. For further advice or help for employers and employees please contact the Charities Trust or visit the HM Revenue and Customs website.
If you want to donate shares to the University, you will need to complete a stock transfer form in order to take the shares out of your name and put them into Middlesex University's name. For more information, please read the HM Revenue and Customs guide to giving shares to a charity.
Middlesex University has charitable status, which means that gifts made by UK income tax payers can be made tax efficient through the Gift Aid Scheme.
By completing a Gift Aid Tax Declaration you can increase the value of your donation by nearly one third, at no additional cost to you.
You can add a quarter to the value of your gift under the Gift Aid Scheme by completing the Gift Aid Tax Declaration on your donation form. Under this scheme, when an individual makes a donation and is a UK taxpayer, the organisation receiving the gift can claim the income tax that the donor has paid on the value of the gift from the Inland Revenue. This means that for every £1 you give, the University can reclaim 25 pence from the Inland Revenue (at current rates of income tax, together with Gift Aid relief).
Gift amount - £100
Total amount received by the university if Gift Aid applies - £125.00
Visit the HM Revenue and Customs website for more information.
If you pay higher rate tax, you can claim the difference between the higher rate of tax (40 and/or 50%) and the basic rate of tax (20%) on the total 'gross' value of your donation to Middlesex University.
For example, if you donate £100, the total value of your donation to the charity is £125 - so you can claim back:
£25 - if you pay tax at 40% (£125 × 20%)
£37.50 - if you pay tax at 50% (£125 × 20%) plus (£125 × 10%)
You can make this claim from the Inland Revenue in the form of additional relief by showing the donation on your tax return.
In addition, under current legislation, any bequest to Middlesex University will be free from Inheritance Tax.
