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 6 July giving them details of all taxable payments/benefits in kind which employees have received as a ‘cash equivalent’ amount.
Under self-assessment, DCC must also tell employees about the taxable payments/benefits in kind that they have received for completion of their own tax returns (if appropriate). Copies of returnable expenses and benefits will only be issued where a benefit has been received and are usually available in June.
HMRC impose a strict penalty regime for late submissions, omissions or inaccurate information. Where these are the employer’s responsibility any charges will have to fall on service area budgets.
To meet these requirements it is essential that accurate information is provided. We can centrally obtain the required information relating to travel claims processed through the central payments arrangements and for lease cars administered by us. However, there are a number of other areas where information is not available and we must seek returns from you.
In order to meet deadlines please return the P11D Declaration form 2016-17 by Friday 31 March 2017.
- The P11D Declaration form should be signed and returned even in the case of a nil return.
- If you have indicated that benefits have been received by employees, you will need to provide further details on the P11D Details of Benefits Declared form (please note that there is a separate worksheet for cars, vans and non-vehicle expenses).
Returns should be sent by post to; Devon County Council, Devon Finance Services (Education and Learning), Room 180, County Hall, Topsham Road, Exeter, EX2 4QD or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
