A significant, recent regulatory change is that certain benefits in kind are now able to be reported via the payroll.
This is not appropriate for all benefits – moreover, the change will not remove the need for some reporting of class 1A NICs outside of payroll. However, for those benefits that can be dealt with through in-payroll reporting, this offers a clear reporting alternative to P11Ds.
The HMRC registration deadline for being able to take advantage of this – with respect to 2018/19 – is April 2018; the deadline for 2017/18 has now passed.
Dataplan helps it customers to unpick the rules and regulations governing this matter and understand what benefits can and cannot be reported through payroll. To chat to a payroll hero about this area today, please call 03331123456.
