We have had a number of accountancy clients ask why the P11D Organiser software is not able to submit ‘blank’ P11D(b) forms online (a blank P11D(b) can occur when a company does not provide any benefits). The short answer is that HMRC does not accept online submissions that contain no accompanying benefits and expenses data and a paper form still has to be submitted.
However, we understand that automating as much of the process as possible is important, we have therefore introduced a new feature into Build 2 of version 2012.2.1 of the P11D Organiser aimed at accountancy clients and those that provide a bureau service.
The change concerns the completion of the employer declaration in Section 2 of the P11D(b) form, where the P11D Organiser system will now automatically tick the appropriate declaration: –
The employer will still have to sign and date the P11D(b) form per HMRC instructions.
