2015 Benefits & Expenses Training for accurate P11D completion

29 January 15 | By: Jas Jhooty


Every year employers face the onerous task of reporting the cash equivalents of benefits & expenses provided to their employees, on P11D forms. Nobody likes to fill in these P11D forms. Employers are only given a short window of three months after the end of the tax year in which to complete these unpopular forms. Because they only have to completed once a year, it is easy to forget the complicated legislation that needs to be interpreted correctly to ensure that employees’ cash equivalents of provided benefits-in-kind are being calculated correctly.

It is for this reason that we are offering affordable P11D training courses that are delivered by ex-HMRC compliance inspectors. Whether you require refresher benefits and expenses training or you are new to completing the dreaded P11D forms, our training will leave you fully prepared and confident to face this onerous annual task.
