P11d filing deadline
Employers should be aware that the filing dates for 2008-9 P11D and P11D9(b) is 6 July 2009. Those employers who filed a paper P11D9(b) form last year are currently being sent new paper forms and a payslip. All relevant businesses should receive these forms by 15 June 2009.
Businesses who submitted online forms last year are being sent a payslip and an online reminder to file the form before the deadline.
This year, a new quality standard for the P11D forms has been introduced. This means that paper forms that are not properly completed will be returned and online submissions must be fully complete before submission is possible. The quality standards are designed to check that the employer reference is included, that employees’ names and national insurance numbers are completed and that the list price of any car provided to an employee is shown on the form etc.
Businesses filing online can file the forms using either commercial payroll software or HMRC’s online facility.
