The majority of respondents to HMRC's recent consultation
on benefits say that they are not in agreement to compulsory payrolling.
Nearly 70 interested parties responded, to the consultation: 'Including Benefits in Kind and Expense Payments in the Payroll' and these included employers, advisers and representative bodies. HMRC has said that its objectives for introducing 'payrolling' are to:
- Reduce administrative burdens and make compliance cost savings for business through simplification of the process;
- Provide a better experience for employees, through improved clarity over the tax treatment of their benefits in kind and expense payments;
