Payroll Giving allows employees to 'give as they earn' by making donations directly from their pay to the New Zealand Flying Doctor Trust.
For every dollar an employee donates they receive a third back as a tax credit in the same pay period.
Because payroll giving is voluntary, employers have the choice of whether to offer the scheme to their employees.
Donations are made through the employer's payroll system.
The employer deducts any donation from their employee's pay, reduces their PAYE by the appropriate tax credit, and then forwards the donation to the chosen donee organisation.
Depending on how the scheme is set up, the frequency, amount and donee organisations chosen by employees can change at the employee's discretion.
