Payroll Annual Reporting

Payroll 21If you are an employer running payroll, you need to:

  • report to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) on the previous tax year (which ends on 5 April) and give your employees a P60
  • prepare for the new tax year, which starts on 6 April

Update employee payroll records

For each employee working for you on 6 April, you’ll need to:

  • prepare a payroll record
  • identify the correct tax code to use in the new tax year (The most common tax code for tax year 2021 to 2022 is 1257L.  You can find out more about tax codes here)
  • enter their tax code in your payroll software

You should include in your payroll:

  • all employees you pay in the tax year, no matter how much you pay them
  • any employee who has worked for you in the current tax year (since 6 April) even if they have already left

Expenses and Benefits for Employees form P11D

By law, if you’re an employer you need to submit an end-of-year report at the end of each tax year to HMRC for each employee you’ve provided with expenses or benefits.

Examples of expenses and benefits include:Image result for expenses and benefits

  • company cars
  • health insurance
  • travel and entertainment expenses
  • childcare

There are different rules for what you have to report and pay, depending on the type of expense or benefit that you provide.

Use form P11D to send the report to HMRC for each employee and director.  

You should not complete a P11D if there are no taxable expenses payments or benefits to be returned for an individual, or if the expenses and benefits have been taxed through your payroll
