How does payroll giving work?

Payroll Giving takes your regular donation to The Salvation Army directly from your pre-tax pay, via your organisation’s payroll system.

You receive immediate tax credits that reduce PAYE amounts payable.

Tax credits are calculated at 33.33 cents for each dollar donated.

Example
Karen makes a regular Payroll Giving donation to The Salvation Army.  She is paid $1,530 every two weeks. This is her only job, so her tax code is “M”.

    With donation Without
  Income $1530.00 $1530.00
Less PAYE $306.12 $306.12
Less Donation $20.00 $0.00
Plus Tax Credit for Payroll Donations $6.67 $0.00
  Take Home Pay $1210.55 $1223.88

Why choose The Salvation Army?

The Salvation Army has been fighting poverty and social distress in New Zealand since 1883. And our mission remains the same: Caring for People, Transforming Lives and Reforming Society.

A rising number of New Zealanders face tough choices as they deal with a myriad of financial and social problems relating to job losses, reduced working hours and the resulting debt.

Moving from poverty to a new and independent life takes great tenacity and it can take tremendous courage to ask for help. The Salvation Army works hard to provide better options in life for those who do. And because giving everyone better choices contributes to the health of society as a whole, helping others helps all of us - both now and for the future.
