How to Stay Safe from HMRC
Every business has to pay their employees expenses in order to operate. You must ensure that you have an effective expenses policy that will help you keep control of your costs and that will also adhere to tax and NIC legislation. Many businesses have poor controls that can lead to spiralling costs, extremely punitive measures being taken by HMRC when they ‘audit’ you, and even employee fraud.
emTax consultants are all ex-HMRC Inspectors and can review your current staff benefits provisioning and expenses policies and procedures, normally as part of a general PAYE Healthcheck. Depending on your requirements, we can then issue a report of our findings including an assessment of potential liabilities uncovered and recommendations for tax savings. This report may then be used to design robust new policies for expenses payments and where necessary, compliant policies on relocation, company car and company van use, engagement of consultants etc.
