Agreed, it very much depends on what your payrolls are like. Just to add another name to the list, I'd recommend IRIS payroll professional (formerly Star). Not the cheapest by any means, but very comprehensive, with great support.

I'd assume he meant to say no OTHER directors or shareholders, than the one wanting to make the gift.

It is a P11D thing - P11D accounts for the tax, class 1 NI through the payroll. Putting it all through the payroll is simpler but the P11D does have a separate box for excess mileage payments above the 45p/25p rates.
EDIT: not sure I read the OP properly re. home to work, so on balance I agree with Lion it should be wages

Yes you save NI, some generous employers also add back their NI saving so the employee gets a higher contribution at no extra cost to the employer (from what they were paying before the sacrifice).

Ensure it is a genuine TPR email. The last few days we've seen fake emails using TPR's name with the heading "Complete your declaration".
Yes I've seen a couple of these in the last week. They look very convincing except the dates don't match up and they have used a spurious PAYE reference.

This might be a common issue, as I have been finding exactly the same problem on several clients.
Haven't reported to HMRC - given the quality of their responses to you all I doubt it would make any difference - but it's been like that for a month or so.

Not all payroll clients have to file a P11D or P11D(b).
No P11D/P11D(b) is expected where HMRC have not issued the P11D(b), although of course you may still need to file one if there are benefits/expenses.
The link Moonbeam has given is what I use where there is a nil return due, and this has worked well.

Yes - we submit online but any amendments have to be submitted on paper with a covering letter.

Not strictly compliant...

2. Where staff are being paid more regularly, I am noting this as "approved loan repayments" on the payslips. As far as I can tell there is no statutory definition of the difference between an approved loan repayment and a salary advance. Until there is one I am in my view compliant, or at least I will not be saying "hands up guv" if HMRC should ever pick me up on this.
As you say, not strictly compliant - if HMRC pick up on it they'll say that you're making regular salary payments at the more frequent interval so you should be calculating PAYE and NIC each payment. It's not really a loan, it's the payment of wages. Whether or not that's in the legislation, however, I will leave to other more learned colleagues!

If you just make 1 submission in month 4, HMRC's records will show that you have not made a submission for months 1-3 so may chase you for the FPS in the first 3 months. The year to date data will be correct, but it won't match up properly. They may also tell you you have overpaid for those first months as a result.
I would suggest restoring to month 1 and sending the FPS for each month, if Sage won't let you send them after rolling into the next period.
