What types of electronic submission are there?

The P11D forms have to be submitted to the local HMRC office that deals with the PAYE affairs of the employer by the 6th July following the end of the tax year to which they relate. HMRC accepts these submissions in both a hard copy format and an electronic format. Electronic submissions are preferable to paper submissions as they are validated for accuracy by HMRC before acceptance. The information contained in the electronic submission is then processed and included in the employee’s tax code far more quickly when compared to the manual input of the paper copies.

There are three routes for electronic submission. These are: -

  1. Electronic Data Interchange (EDI )route via a dedicated lease line
  2. Employer’s Electronic Communication (EEC) submission by 3.5” floppy disc
  3. File by Internet (FBI) submission via the Government Gateway in an XML format

The P11D Organiser supports both the EEC & FBI submission routes.
