Employers must submit P11d forms to HMRC at the end of each tax year, to report the value of certain employee benefits. These may be company cars, private medical insurance, or other benefits that have been provided to employees and directors.
If you are covered by a formal payrolling arrangement with HMRC, or are dealt with under a PAYE Settlement Agreement, then you do not need to report on employee benefits. If you’re not sure, please get in touch and we can advise you.
The deadline for submitting P11ds to HMRC is 6 July following the tax year. You must give a copy of each employee’s P11d, or the information it contains, to the employee by the same date. There are penalties for submitting late or incorrect forms.
The employer must also pay Class 1A National Insurance Contributions, on the value of all benefits provided by 22 July.
Certain benefits can be taxed through PAYE, or ‘payrolled.’ You must register to do this before the start of the tax year. However, you will still need to submit P11ds at the year-end, to enable you to pay the Class 1A NICs.
