Passing payroll giving donations to the donee organisation

Depending on your filing frequency, there are different dates you need to meet for passing on payroll giving donations.

Payday filers

From 1 April 2018 if you elect to be a payday filer you'll need to provide employment information to us within two days after paydays.

You need to pass the donations within two months and two days after the end of the pay period.

For example if you pay weekly, for the payday on 7 March, payment is required to be made to the donee organisation by 9 May.

Employer monthly schedules

If you're continuing to file Employment information schedules, or are a new employer who chooses not to be a payday filer, then the date that the donation must be with the donee organisation is shown in the tables below.
