Purchase of a laptop with owner's gift voucher

How to treat a purchase of a company laptop where owner contributed a gift voucher towards the cost

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

A director of a closed company bought a laptop for £400 on a company card for business use.  The laptop's original price was £500. It was reduced by £100. This £100 reduction is shown as a gift voucher on the invoice. This reduction is a trade-in of the owner's private old laptop. What is the correct accounting treatment of this transaction? Will there be any tax implications that would need to be reported to HMRC, for instance on P11D? Thank you.

What would be the benefit to the director that you would put on a P11D?

Personally, I’d go Dr FA £500, Cr bank £400, Cr DLA £100.

I'm gonna take a wild stab and say the op meant "close" company.

P11d for what? The director has contributed to the purchase of a company laptop and therefore the company owes the director the amount he contributed.

As the post above me says. Cr the dla 100

Director has sold his laptop for £100 and paid the proceeds to the company with which it has part-paid for a new laptop.

What's the problem ? Just think it through, step by step.
