P11D Checklist

What are forms P11d and P9D?

They are declarations of benefits in kind receive by Directors and other employers.

Does everyone have to have one of these forms?

No, only those who fall within certain categories. Handley Evans & Co can advise you further if you provide tall the necessary details.

These forms plus a Form P11D(b) declaration must be submitted to HM Revenue & Customs by 5th July following the end of the tax year. So for 2012/13 they must be submitted by 5th July 2013.

Who pays the tax on the Benefits in Kind?

The person who has received the benefit in kind pays the tax either by being coded out or through self-assessment.

Who pays the National Insurance on Benefits in Kind?

Class 1A National Insurance is paid by the employer.

Who prepares the forms?

It is the employer’s responsibility to prepare the forms but if asked to do so we will prepare them for our employer clients from information they provide to us and which we will ask them for. We provide the forms to our clients for them to peruse and sign before we send them to HM Revenue & Customs so that our clients know in advance what is being submitted.

Who Calculates the National insurance payable?

We calculate the Class 1A National Insurance, tell our clients how much it is and the due date by which it must be paid.

What information is needed to complete these forms?

The following check list is a guide to the information needed but as always we liase with our clients to ask for what is needed in time to prepare and submit the forms.
