Governance & Compliance 37: P11D Expenses and Benefits 2015-16

You may be aware from previous years of the need to collect information to allow the completion of the P11d return.

The Authority is required to make a return to HM Revenue & Customs by 6th July 2016, giving details of the taxable payments/ benefits in kind that employees have received as a ‘cash equivalent’ amount. In addition, the Authority must also have given the same information to employees by this date.

The cost of not meeting these requirements is heavy. Therefore, it is essential that accurate information is provided within the deadlines.

Although we are able to obtain data for travel claims & lease cars administered by us, there are a number of other areas where information is not available and we require this information to be provided.

Please note that returns are not required in cases where a dispensation exists.  HMRC have confirmed that DCC’s current dispensations are:

  • Business entertaining
  • Company credit/charge cards
  • Home phone-call charges only
  • Travel & Subsistence – receipted only

The P11D letter has been sent to all Schools via Schools Comms and can also be found by going to the year end guidance webpage. For more information please read the information available from the School Finance Webpages which includes links to the P11D Declaration and P11D Return Forms.

Every school and establishment must make a return by Friday 8th April 2016, even if it is a nil return.
