EXPENSES AND BENEFITS ONLINE FORMS

The forms P11D, and where appropriate P9D, which report benefits and expenses for both employees and directors for the year ended 5 April 2013, are due for submission to HMRC by 6 July 2013.

Employees pay tax on benefits provided as shown on the P11D, either via a PAYE coding notice adjustment or through the self assessment system. In addition, the employer has to pay Class 1A national insurance contributions at 13.8% on the provision of most benefits.

If you would like any help with the forms P11D or the calculation of the Class 1A liability please get in touch.

From April 2013 HMRC have introduced an additional method for employers and agents to report end of year expenses and benefits called ‘Online end of year Expenses and Benefits forms’. These are HMRC produced web based forms. However at present only two of the new online forms are available which deal with the situation where no P11Ds are due or benefits have been fully ‘payrolled’.

HMRC have advised that the rest of the planned online forms are in the final stages of development and should be available in June, prior to the 6 July filing deadline.

Employers who previously used HMRC’s Basic PAYE Tools to create forms P11D, P9D and P11D(b) will need to consider alternative methods for completing these end of year forms as the tools will not provide this facility for the year ended 5 April 2013.
