With deadlines looming for P11D forms our payroll processors walk you through everything you need to know about the P11D.


What is the P11D?

When is the P11D due?

HMRC’s deadline for P11D submissions is 6th July 2023 and Late submissions and/or payments to HMRC can result in financial penalties and interest.


How to complete forms P11D forms

There are different rules for what employers have to report and pay depending on the type of expense or benefit they provide. Types of benefit might include:

  • company cars
  • health insurance
  • travel and entertainment expenses

If the organisation has provided relevant expenses or benefits to employees or directors and if these have not been processed through the payroll for the tax year the company will need to do the following:
