Setting up payroll giving deductions (New Zealand)

Payroll Giving provides employees with an option to make donations directly from their pay to approved donee organisations. For every dollar an employee donates, they will receive a third back as a tax credit in the same pay period.

Payroll Giving donations can only be made to donee organisations that have Inland Revenue-approved donee status.

To use Payroll Giving, first it needs to be activated in the Payroll Setup. For further information on activating Payroll Giving Click here.

Once Payroll Giving has been activated, various options and features that relate to Payroll Giving are now available.

Any donee organisations that employees want to make donations to must be set up in MYOB Exo Payroll before any donations can be made. For further information on setting up Payroll Giving Donee Organisations Click here.
