Two clients have contacted me today because they have received requests for P11Ds dated 23 June.
Both run their own payrolls so we have never raised the subject of P11Ds with them (although we will ask the question from now on as we apply for dispensations for all our own payroll clients). Neither has any true benefits in kind but some reimbursed travel expenses.
Has anyone else received any of these letters out of the blue? Is HMRC trawling for penalties by sending these letters late? With consultation groups on doing away with putting the travel expenses onto P11Ds only to be recovered via personal tax returns why on earth have HMRC started to do this now? Presumably they will then adjust PAYE codes following receipt of the P11Ds and we will have to get those changed.
