Whenever a director or an employee receives benefits in kind, a P11D form must be prepared.
Benefits in kind refers to any items or services that a company director or employee receives in addition to their salary. So, that could be anything from private healthcare and interest free loans, through to company cars.
Why do benefits in kind need to be reported?
Benefits in kind effectively increase an employee’s salary. This means that there may be National Insurance contributions to pay on them. However, it’s important to note that these contributions are paid by the company, not the individual employee or director.
When do P11Ds need to be filed?
All P11Ds must be filed by the 6th of July following the tax year in question. So, for example, for the tax year running from April 2017 to April 2018, any P11Ds must be filed with HMRC by the 6th July 2018.
P11Ds are file by the employer, not the employee.
