Workplace giving allows you to donate money to charities like ADRA directly from your pay.
If your employer offers payroll giving and want to donate to ADRA New Zealand, you need to give your employer:
Your employer will calculate your donation and take it out of your wages before they pay you.
They’ll also calculate your tax credit (33.33 cents for each dollar you donate) and take this amount off your PAYE for that pay.
If your pay is $2,140 a month before tax and you donate $12:
You won’t get a receipt – but you don’t have to claim the donations at the end of the year, since the tax credit is instant. You can still make an annual claim using Inland Revenue’s tax credit claim form (IR526) for other donations you make outside of your pay.
