Revolutionary Payroll Giving Platform GoodPAYE Named London’s Start-up Business of the Year at FSB Awards

London, UK – GoodPAYE, the innovative tech-for-good company, has been crowned the Start-up Business of the Year at the Federation of Small Business (FSB) Awards in London. The prestigious accolade is in recognition of the company’s revolutionary approach to payroll giving, which is transforming the way that employees and employers donate to charities.

Following its success at the London awards, GoodPAYE will now be entered into the national awards, which are set to take place in Birmingham on May 18th.

GoodPAYE officially launched in August 2022 and has already made significant strides in the payroll giving space. The company’s platform is designed to make it easier for employees to donate to their favourite charities through payroll giving, which is widely regarded as the most impactful way to support charitable causes.

In a competitive category at London’s FSB awards, GoodPAYE emerged as the winner, beating off competition from other promising start-ups. Speaking at the event, GoodPAYE’s Managing Director, Richard Packman, gave special recognition to the company’s five charity shareholders, acknowledging their investment in start-ups and commitment to driving innovation in the charity sector.

“We are incredibly grateful to our five shareholder charities [Crisis, Barnardo’s, Royal British Legion, RNIB, WaterAid] for their unwavering support and investment in our vision. This award is not just a recognition of GoodPAYE’s achievements, but a celebration of our collaborative efforts to drive positive change in the world,” said Richard.

“Winning this award is two years in the making. We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised for the impact we are having on payroll giving, and we hope this award will inspire more organisations to offer the scheme to their staff.”

Richard also spoke about the potential for the award to raise awareness of payroll giving more broadly.

“Payroll giving is still widely unknown, and we hope this award will help to change that. At a time when the charity sector is facing significant challenges due to the cost-of-living crisis, payroll giving represents a huge opportunity for us to raise much-needed funds and make a real difference.”

GoodPAYE’s innovative platform is changing the way people give to charities and paving the way for continued growth and greater impact in the sector. To find out more about GoodPAYE, email the team at or visit
