Payroll giving

Payroll-giving-table_500x328

Payroll Giving is quick, easy, tax-effective way to give monthly so it costs you less to give more!  For example, if you pay tax at the basic rate of 20%, it will only cost you £4, yet Music Heritage Lab receives £5 as the tax is included. Your donation is taken from your pre-tax salary, meaning that part of your donation comes from money that would have otherwise gone to HMRC. Find out more about payroll giving on the HMRC website. Your regular donations are valuable because they guarantee a regular flow of funds and help us budget effectively and plan ahead. To become a payroll giver simply fill in our sign up form (PDF) and we’ll do the rest! You can provide a significant boost to the vital work of Music Heritage Lab by offering Payroll Giving to your employees. It will enable you to increase your company’s charitable giving with little cost or effort, and will allow you to monitor the funds raised by your company. Join MHL Payroll Giving scheme today and help make payday last a lifetime!

Gift Aid

Make your gift to MHL  worth even more with Gift Aid – at no extra cost to you! If you are a UK tax payer, you can make every £1 you give – or have given – worth 25p more at no extra cost to you. This is because the government’s Gift Aid scheme allows MHL to reclaim tax on donations. For your donations to be eligible for Gift Aid you must pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax for each tax year that is at least equal to the tax that all charities and Music Heritage Lab will claim back on your Gift Aided donations in each tax year. If you are unsure whether you are eligible for donating by Gift Aid, or simply want more information, contact the HM Revenue & Customs directly by calling their Gift Aid helpline on 0151 472 6038 or visiting http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/. Please remember to let us know in future of any changes to your tax status, including changes to your name and address. You can contact us at any time by emailing donate@musicheritagelab.org.
