Make a difference to the lives of people affected by thyroid disorders with a regular tax-free gift direct from your salary.

What is Payroll Giving?

So that we can continue to be there for anyone affected by thyroid disease, we rely on regular donations to help us plan our future with much more confidence. Setting up a regular donation through your salary is one of the best ways for you to help us - plus it’s tax-free!

Sign up today using the online Payroll Giving form to start a weekly or monthly donation to help make a real difference to the lives of people affected by thyroid disease.

Why set up Payroll Giving?

Payroll Giving is a tax-free way to give to charity before the tax is deducted from your salary, meaning that if you give £10 a month the gift will only cost you £8 from your net pay (if you are a basic rate taxpayer). If you pay a higher rate of tax, £10 a month will only cost you £6 from your net pay. In either case, the BTF would still receive £10.

How do I sign up to Payroll Giving?

1. Online: Complete the online form for a quick and easy way to set up your gift

2. Speak to your HR or Payroll department about setting up a regular gift to the BTF through your salary.

Payroll Giving is easy to set up and you can change your donation at any time by informing your HR or Payroll department at work.

This means you get immediate tax relief on the value of your donation. So, for a basic rate taxpayer wanting to give a £10 donation, it will only cost £8, or just £6 for higher rate taxpayers. Many employers also encourage the scheme by matching their employees' donations.

Payments are taken straight from your salary either as a regular monthly payment or as a one off gift. A small charge for administration is taken by the intermediary agencies that process payroll gifts, although some companies cover this fee as a donation.

All Trials

Clinical trials are used to test new and existing treatments. Sometimes the results (the overall picture of the treatment’s effects) are not published - which means that other medical researchers and doctors cannot use them. If you would like to change this situation to the ultimate benefit of patients, please sign the AllTrials petition.AllTrials petition
