2017 Benefits & Expenses (P11D) Training and Employment Tax Update

26 January 17 | By: Jas Jhooty


The 2016 Autumn Statement has introduced several new tax raising initiatives including:

  • far reaching changes on the taxation of salary sacrifice schemes
  • and the requirement to apply PAYE on invoices presented to Public Sector bodies by Personal Service Companies

We have updated our annual Benefits & Expenses Training package to explain what these changes are and more importantly to advise on how you can prepare for these changes.

New Training Syllabus

Our 2017 Benefits & Expenses training course has been extensively rewritten in the concise, clear, easy-to-understand format that we have become well known for. It provides practical advice on how to apply the very latest legislative changes including: -

  • Explanation of the new salary sacrifice legislation – including advice on ways to minimise the potential disruption to your day to day business
  • The new Trivial Benefits exemption
  • How to voluntarily payroll benefits
  • How the new exemption replacing the P11D dispensation regime operates
  • Planned future employment tax legislation
  • HMRC’s latest Employer Compliance drive

As well as the above brand new content, we also provide full refresher training on how to calculate cash equivalents of benefits-in-kind for all P11D sections, paying particular attention to: –

  • Living Accommodation
  • Mileage Allowances
  • Company Cars
  • Company Vans
  • Beneficial Loans
  • Medical Benefit
  • Private Use of Assets
  • Relocation Expenses

Other areas covered include:

  • A rundown of Employment Status Indicators – including advice on how to prepare for payrolling invoices received from Personal Service Companies, if you are a Public Sector Body
  • The new PAYE Settlement Agreement rules – including best practice on how to collate PSA details efficiently
  • Calculating Class 1A NIC & completing forms P11D b – including details of future extensions to the Class 1A NIC charge e.g. applying to Termination payments exceeding £30,000 from April 2018

Course Aims

At the end of this course, delegates will be able to: –

  • Effectively prepare for the upcoming changes to salary sacrifice legislation
  • Accurately identify Personal Service Companies working in the Public Sector, caught by the new requirement to have their invoices payrolled from this April
  • Identify exactly what has to be reported on P11D returns
  • Determine how the various benefits-in-kind are calculated
  • Avoid making common P11D mistakes
  • Appreciate the importance of maintaining policies and processes to ensure compliance
  • Meet their new legislative obligations and responsibilities

Course Delivery

This course can be delivered either online or onsite at your premises depending on your requirements. A maximum of four delegates from your organisation can attend the online courses. If you prefer, one-to-one online training can also be delivered.

Training Costs

The costs for each type of course are as follows:

  • Online course for up to 4 delegates – £750 + VAT
  • One-to-one online training – £360 + VAT
  • Onsite training for up to 10 delegates – £1,000 + expenses + VAT

Continuing Professional Development

Our course content meets the criteria to be counted towards Continuous Professional Development (CPD) as set out by the Chartered Institute of Taxation and Association of Taxation Technicians, and is more than sufficient to count towards other learned bodies (e.g. AAT, CIMA, CIPP CIPD etc.) as well.

The timetable is for a two/three hour session in the morning followed by a two/three hour session in the afternoon dependent on numbers of individual queries raised. We are therefore more than happy to issue you with a certificate that you have received a day’s CPD training in a refresher course on Benefits & Expenses tax legislation after you have completed the training course.
