Donations through payroll giving reached a record £155m in 2012/13

Revised figures from HM Revenue & Customs show that the number of employees donating through the scheme passed the million mark last year

Donations made to charity through payroll giving reached a record £155m in 2012/13, revised figures from HM Revenue & Customs show.

The figures, published last month, show the number of employees donating through the scheme has surpassed the one million mark in a year for the first time since the launch of the scheme.

HMRC figures, released in June, showed payroll giving had increased by £6m to £124m in 2012/13.

But HMRC has revised its initial figures to show donations made through salaries increased by £37m to a record £155m in 2012/13. The figures show that 1.02 million people made donations through the scheme that year.

According to the data, the value of payroll giving increased by 31 per cent between 2011/12 and 2012/13 to £155m, and the number of donors increased by 39 per cent from 735,000 the previous year.

A note on the data says that HMRC has changed its data collection procedure from a quarterly to an annual basis.
