There are many benefits when using the P11D Organiser to submit your benefit returns online. Firstly, it is both secure and convenient. It is much more efficient and reliable than using paper, and can cut down on storage space, postage costs and administration.
After you have finished entering your P11D information for the year, sending this information online to HMRC is literally as simple as clicking a button. Your information is sent to HMRC servers via the internet and is automatically validated against their business rules for accuracy. Online submissions therefore have the added advantage of minimising the chance of any potential liabilities for submitting incorrect returns when compared with paper submissions because of this validation. Once the submission is accepted, benefit details will be incorporated into employee’s tax codes in much less time than if they were entered manually.
For those employers that provide company cars to employees, you will be pleased to learn that the P11D Organiser can also be used to produce P46(car) forms automatically. These in-year P46(car) forms of company car changes can also be submitted electronically through the Government Gateway, to ensure your employee’s tax codes are kept as up to date as possible.
Summary of benefits:
All employers with at least 50 employees now have to submit their PAYE Employer Annual Returns to HMRC electronically.
