Charitable Giving Review

This public consultation is part of the Charitable Giving Review being led by the Policy & Resources Committee in partnership with the Association of Guernsey Charities and the Guernsey Community Foundation.

Charitable Giving
Online Survey

The purpose of this consultation is to understand the community's views on:

Payroll giving is a way of giving money to charity direct from an employee's salary. The donation may be entitled to some form of tax relief. For example, in the UK, employees donate to charities direct from their gross pay, i.e. before tax, and the employer pays the donation straight to the chosen charity. In Jersey, the employer deducts the charitable donations from an employee's pay, (the gross salary still declared by the employee for income tax) and the charity claims the tax relief on donations. The latter type of scheme links to the jurisdiction's tax relief limits on charitable donations. In Guernsey, tax relief on charitable donations can be claimed by charities on donations of £500-£5,000 per individual, (£10,000 for a married couple) per calendar year.

The results from this consultation will inform how we might best work with and support the third sector in the future, with any recommendations to be included in the 2018 Budget Report, to be debated in November 2017.

Members of the public are invited to make submissions by 7 April 2017.  A link to the survey can be found on this page.

If you have any questions or if you wish to complete this survey offline please contact Helga Carre on 01481 717000 ext: 2061 or email: Helga.Carre@gov.gg


A summary report of the responses to this consultation will be made available here at the end of April 2017.
