Forms P11D and P9D

Newsletter issue - May 2015.

The forms P11D and P9D need to be submitted to HMRC by 6 July 2015 where expenses or benefits were provided to your employees in 2014/15, which are not covered by a dispensation, or are not otherwise exempt from tax. If the forms are not submitted on time, HMRC will issue penalties.

But how does HMRC know whether a P11D or P9D is due to be filed? In pre-RTI years when you completed the end of year form P35 you had to say whether a P11D was due. Those P35 questions were carried over to the "final" RTI report for each tax year, which is normally a full payment submission (FPS) report or employer payment summary (EPS). However, from 6 March 2015 there has been no legal requirement to complete those end of year questions, but most payroll software continued to include them in the final submission for the year.

If you didn't complete the "Is a P11D due?" question on the final FPS for 2014/15, HMRC may assume a P11D is needed anyway. To avoid any nastiness with automatic penalties you can tell the HMRC computer that no P11D/ P9D is needed and no Class 1A NIC is due by completing an online declaration.

The latest Employer Bulletin (no. 53) contains lots of tips for getting the P11Ds right first time, and it is well worth a read. You may find you don't have to submit a P9D for every low paid worker. Where an employee is provided with a medical benefit such as health insurance, and that employee earns less than £8,500 per year, you don't have to complete a P9D for the employee. We can help take the strain of your P11D task.
