Take a look at forthcoming online HMRC events.  HMRC ask that you register at least five minutes before a digital meeting is due to start.  

Payrolling – tax employees benefits through payroll

Payrolling is designed to make it easier for employees to see that they're paying the right amount of tax and easier for your employer clients as they won’t need to send in P11Ds for payrolled benefits. This session will demonstrate how registering for payrolling works and what happens once somebody has registered, using examples.

Join to find out more about the advantages of payrolling benefits in kind provided to employees to both them and their employer.
