MORE THAN a quarter of employees at law firm Taylor Wessing donate to charity through their monthly pay packet — thought to be one of the highest rates of payroll giving in the UK.

After the introduction of payroll giving in 2000 and annual promotions of the scheme by Workplace Giving UK, participation has steadily increased year on year, hitting 27 per cent. This compares to the UK average of 5 per cent.

Taylor Wessing employees now give over £45,000 ($106,852) per annum to UK registered charities of their choice.

Clare Casey, payroll and benefits manager at Taylor Wessing, said: “With this being the most tax effective way to give to charity, particularly for higher rate tax payers, I’m not surprised by the success we have achieved.

“Payroll giving is such an easy way for our staff to make a real difference and I would recommend it to anyone.”

Last month, research revealed that UK staff would donate more to charity through their monthly salary if their employers offered payroll giving.

A survey of 1,000 employees by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) and The Royal Bank of Scotland, showed that 42 per cent would contribute a percentage of their wages to charitable causes every month if they could.
