Details

Employers and payroll bureaux have an option to submit expenses and benefits (P11D) on magnetic media to the HMRC. Submitting returns this way means quick automatic processing and cuts out manual keying by HMRC. As a result employees’ tax code numbers are reviewed automatically and accurately updated quicker when compared with paper returns.
