P11d (Employee Benefits Reporting)


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 and 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 (‘PSA’), then you do not need to report on employee benefits. If you are not sure, we can advise you).

Deadline for submitting P11d forms 

The deadline for submitting P11ds is 6 July following the tax year. You must give 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 also has to pay Class 1A National Insurance Contributions on the value of all benefits provided by 19 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 still need to submit P11ds at the year-end to enable you to pay the Class 1A NICs.

Which employee benefits are taxable

Of course, you need to know which employee benefits provided are taxable, and how to calculate the taxable value.

Our team can do the sums for you and help you complete and file the P11ds and calculate the Class 1A NICs payable.
