In the Know: What is a P11D form and does it affect me?
Published on Monday, March 3, 2014
As you may have noticed, HMRC have many different and complicated forms and it can be quite difficult to get to grips with what form does what. Essentially, aP11D form is issued by your employer showing any ‘Benefits in Kind’ – items that you've received, not related to your wage and any reimbursed expenses that are claimed throughout the tax year to your Limited Company.
It only affects you if you’re:
- A Limited Company director (owning more than 5% of the company) or
- An employee earning over £8,500 per year
Even if you don’t see it as a taxable benefit to you or your company, it still needs to be reported.
Fines could come into force if you don’t fill out the form properly or if you don’t fill it out before the 6th July deadline.
If you are a Churchill Knight client, don't worry. We will take care of this exercise for you automatically, and the form will be available on your Client Web Portal by 6th July.
If you need to fill out a P11D form, remember that you’re using it to claim back effectively for perks of the job including interest free loans or a company car.
