Lort Smith is fortunate to have been chosen as a workplace giving partner by many organisations including:
- JB Hi-Fi
- Ernst & Young
- BHP Billiton
- Department of Primary Industries – Victoria.
Our relationship with these organisations also provides opportunities for us to work together on community fundraising.
A major benefit of workplace giving for employees is that donations are deducted from your pre-tax salary. When you make a general donation to a charity you would normally claim it as a tax deduction in your annual tax return. Through pre-tax payroll giving, the Australian Tax Office allows you to claim the benefit up-front each pay.
