A new payroll-giving agency has said it will process charity donations within 48 hours.

Giveall2Charity says it provides the solutions to the problems associated with payroll giving, including portability and transparency.

A Treasury consultation on payroll giving, published in January, proposed to reduce the processing time for payroll giving donations from 60 to 30 days.

The online platform, which is a charity, is funded by a subscription fee and does not charge charities commission. The service is free for charities with annual incomes of less than £10,000 and costs £24 a month for larger charities.

Tim Odell, chief executive of the agency, said charities, employers and employees can access their own online accounts on the system.

Employees can load multiple employers into their profiles and therefore change jobs and continue giving, he said. A common criticism of existing schemes is their lack of portability when people change jobs.

Odell, a chartered accounted, said the site was able to keep the costs down because of its corporate partners, who have donated software and resources worth more than £20m.

"They’ve also covered ongoing costs in respect of all processing," he said. "Our affiliate companies believe in the vision. Our ethos is simple – we don’t want to make money out of charitable giving.

"We want to ensure everybody has access to the same level of resources, regardless of their size."

The site has signed up five companies since it was launched two weeks ago and is processing applications to pass donations to about 200 charities.
