Expenses & Benefits - End of Year

BrightPay can produce a P11D & P11D(b) to send to HMRC after year end which includes your Class 1A NICs declaration and details of the expenses and benefits provided including cash equivalents.

Note: Expenses/benefits and P11D are not available for Free Licence customers.

The form P11D provides information of benefits & expenses provided that were not payrolled.

The form P11D(b) is used to declare the amount of Class 1 NICs you are due to pay on benefits and expenses for the year.
