London (RPRN) 07/08/13 — Following HMRC rules and regulations remains imperative to understand where employee benefits should be taxed and by how much?

All business earnings are taxable but unless the benefit can be converted into cash there is no taxable benefit. Whilst this is a general rule, variants and a lot of small print occur therefore specialist advice should be consulted.

Policies are detailed and can be subject to change as they have done in the recent budget for 2013. The Independent (2013); ‘Companies will benefit from the further trimming of corporation tax on all businesses – large and small – to 20 per cent in 2015.’ The complicated specifics of taxing should be reported properly to ensure no penalties are incurred. A P11D must be completed annually by employers, presenting HMRC with the benefits compensated to employees and directors. Please contact King and Taylor for further information on reports needed to be submitted by your business.

Understanding which payments do not involve a tax liability is important. Dispensations can be granted by the HMRC, allowing the employee
