Small charities can get free payroll services online for three years through payroll software provider Netpaydue.
The company, which has been Inland Revenue-accredited for three years, is offering all charities employing up to 10 people free access to their payroll system for three years. They then have the option to continue using the system at half commercial rates - £33 a year - for two more years.
Companies using the service will be able to file their end-of-year returns electronically and claim what Netpaydue trumpets as a £759 saving over the next five years.
To qualify, charities must file their returns on time to the Inland Revenue's quality standards.
Juan Ho, director of Netpaydue, said: "This is a way for us to give something back to society." Company executive Nick Clarke added: "We are interested in getting as many charities on board as we can. Our system has achieved the Inland Revenue Payroll Accreditation, and we are one of only a handful of payroll software providers to achieve this standard."
