Treasury economic secretary Melanie Johnson said: ‘This is the next step towards making Payroll Giving a greater success. I have already announced that the government’s campaign to double the amount of money given to charity through Payroll Giving will start this summer.
‘The change we are making today will mean that donors can be confident that their donations will reach their chosen charities without delay.’
From 6 April, the agencies which distribute Payroll Giving donations to charities will for the first time have to distribute them within a set period. Agencies will have up to 60 days in which to make the distribution to the charities chosen by donors.
Where an agency fails to distribute donations within the time limit, it will be required to inform the Inland Revenue and explain why it has not done so.
