Voluntary payrolling of employee benefits and expenses

HMRC has published a consultation document on the possibility of a voluntary system to enable employers to account for tax and national insurance on employee benefits in real time through payroll.

The government believes that payrolling benefits could offer substantial administrative savings for employers, and it wishes to create a system that will enable employers to use this process, if they wish.

It is consulting on the design and scope of a payrolling model and is also interested to hear from employers who are already payrolling benefits on an informal basis.

Three priority areas for consultation are:

  • Private use contributions for company cars and fuel,
  • Private medical and gym membership fees, and
  • One-off large benefits through transfers of assets.
