A P11D is a form that tells HMRC if you received benefits from your employer, outside of your salary.
Your employer has to file one with HMRC every year by the 6th of July.
What you need to remember about the P11D form:
- your employer has to give you a copy as well
- keep a copy for when you need to file a Self Assessment tax return. These benefits are usually considered income by HMRC and are taxed
- the P11D is not the same with P11. P11 shows deductions made by PAYE (like Income Tax and National Insurance)
- if your salary is under £8,500 per year, your employer has to give you form P9D instead.
