There are many changes for the current tax year and we are already aware of changes for future years. So its important that employers ensure their procedures and systems are fit for purpose for the tax years 2016/17 and 2017/18.

Expenses and benefits are a complex area and can be even more emotive than pay since everyone has their own idea of what they should or shouldn’t be able to claim tax free. And what’s more the regulations that govern these expenses and benefits often change as does the reporting and so when HMRC undertakes compliance reviews this area is seen as quick wins since few employers get it right every time.

There are a number of changes, which impact PAYE Settlement Agreements and P11Ds, payrolling benefits, and salary sacrifice. And so it is important for all employers to understand these changes in both the treatment of payments and the reporting requirements.
