The deadline is fast approaching for employers to file details of their employee’s expenses and benefits for the 2020/21 tax year.
You will need to submit a return to HMRC to confirm the Class 1A National insurance contributions due. Depending on how you have treated your Benefits in the 2020/21 will depend on which forms you will need to submit.
If you have been ‘Payrolling’ your expenses and benefits
For Employers that have been taxing benefits through the payroll for your employee (called ‘payrolling’ your benefits), you should have registered this with HMRC before the start of the tax year (6 April 2020).
You are therefore not required to submit a P11D form for employees if you’re paying tax on all their benefits through your payroll. However, you’ll still need to submit a P11D(b) form so you can pay any Class 1A National Insurance you owe.
