How to set up Payroll Deduction
Payroll Deduction is simple to operate, working just like any other payroll deductions you may currently run.
- Your employee joins the credit union, completing a Payroll Deduction form which gives you authority to deduct from their pay. This will be sent to your Payroll Department.
- Your Payroll Department would prepare a weekly / monthly schedule of deductions and send it to us.
- Your Payroll Department would remit funds relating to the schedule of deductions to us on or before the usual pay day by BACS or cheque.
If your company would like to offer staff this extra benefit, we can be contacted on 01482 778753 or email@example.com.

Watch what our payroll members have to say
“The credit union offers an ethical, not for profit service that helps you take control of your money, budget for your bills and plan for the future. It’s owned by its members and was recently awarded the FairBanking Mark in recognition of its approach to lending. We’re pleased to be working with them in offering our staff this extra benefit through the payroll partnership scheme.”
Councillor Matthew Patrick, Portfolio Holder, North East Lincolnshire Council
“The fact that if you save with them it comes straight off your pay makes it very easy to use. The loans they offer are comparable to a lot of High Street offerings.”
Department for Work & Pensions colleague, Seaham Pensions Centre
"Hull City Council values its partnership with the Credit Union which over the years has helped thousands of Council colleagues in the City to make the most of their money by being able to access safe ways to save and responsible, affordable credit direct from their wages. It's a much loved friendly local service that helps our workforce to steer clear of high cost credit while supporting the regional economy."
