How it works
Payroll Giving means your employees give as they earn, with their donation automatically deducted each time they're paid.
Instructions for an organisation to join the payroll donation service is on the Inland Reveue Department (IRD) website.
Your organisation can also opt to match your employees’ donation, which means even more help for Kiwi kids.
Donations help Plunket provide the best start for every Kiwi child, and we're always grateful to have more payroll donors on board.
You earn an immediate tax credit of 33% each time you donate with payroll giving. This can save you time at the end of the year, since you don’t have to keep receipts and then claim a tax credit.
Your employer will forward your donation to Plunket and you’ll receive immediate tax benefits, based on your donation amount. For example, if you make a $10 donation to Plunket every week, you will receive a tax credit of $3.33 right away.
