Benefits Profile - Employee

Selecting the “P11D” benefits profile icon from the employee details screen will display the benefit records assigned to the employee in a summary screen.

Navigate to the Employer Benefit Profile screen by clicking on the “P11D icon” from either the “Employee details” screen or the “View List of employees” screen.





Having clicked the “P11D benefits” icon, the system will display the benefits profile screen for the selected employee. This screen displays all assigned benefits at employee level and also a total Taxable value for all the benefits for the employee.




Drill down/Edit

From this benefits profile screen it is possible to navigate directly to the benefit records displayed by double clicking any of the displayed benefit descriptions or clicking the Edit button.




Add

To add a new benefit type, make a selection from the resulting screen and click Add:-



The system will display all of the existing Benefit types for that section of the P11D.



To add a new Benefit type click the ADD button



Enter the details of the new benefit type as required and click OK to save the new type. This will now be available for use in assigning this benefit type to employees.

The illustration shown below is for a medical benefit with a fixed premium value with a specified date range for which this premium/value relates to. You can also set a benefit up without values or fixed dates - you can provide this during assignment on screen for an individual or as part of the imported values during the import process.






The benefit profile properties that can be set include:-


Class 1A NIC
Ordinarily system pre-set and unchangeable (greyed out) as being clearly defined by legislation (Brown or Blue boxes on the P11D form). Although for certain sections of the P11D, the setting can be user-defined so as to set to either “Pay” or “Not pay” Class 1A NIC for a specific benefit type. e.g. “Overseas Medical Insurance” = Class 1A NIC setting “NO”
Payroll Benefit
Set to “YES” where a benefit has already been taxed through the payroll. This will allow the system to adjust the values for employer Class 1A NIC liability for the payrolled benefits and therefore make the appropriate adjustment for Class 1A NIC on the P11D(b) facsimile report.
Optional Remuneration Arrangements (OpRA) 
A setting (Yes/No) to enable the ability to enter £ values for amounts to be taken into account where benefit categories are subject to an OpRA arrangement.

Where a BiK is provided as part of OpRA, the taxable value is now the higher of the taxable value of the BiK under the normal rules or the amount of salary/cash foregone. This is the value you use for calculating the Income Tax, Class 1 or Class 1A NICs, where liable, in respect of the BiK.

HMRC definition/more information on OpRA available here: OpRA 
Set as default value
A fixed value setting used for a common type of benefit. e.g. “Family Bupa cover” set to £750 will globally change/set ALL records in the system of this type.
Apply dispensation
Turning on/off and entering a percentage of a benefit value so that the value is still reported on employees benefit reports but NOT REPORTED TO HMRC either
electronically (File by internet) or by any other means (P11D (b) facsimile report)
Part 5 ITEPA2003 expenses claim
A setting used to create a value to “counterclaim” where expenses values that are not covered by a dispensation but are “wholly and exclusively in the performance of the duties of the employment” to form a Part 5 ITEPA 2003 claim.
Prorata the dates to days available
An option for setting the benefit category to automatically calculate benefits based on the dates available in the Tax year. i.e. Turn On/Off the calculation setting for the benefit.
set available from date
An option for setting available FROM date for all matching benefit descriptions. The dates are then applied and used in conjunction with a pro rata setting to automatically calculate benefits based on the dates available. i.e. setting FROM date to 01/01/2018 and TO date to 31/12/2018 in the 2017/18 Tax year would calculate a total of 95 days availability of that benefit and then be used to calculate a benefit-in-kind value as such. e.g. a £750 annual premium divided 365 x 95 = £195.21
set available to date

An option for setting available TO dates for all matching benefit descriptions. The dates are then applied and used in conjunction with a pro rata setting to automatically calculate benefits based on the dates available. i.e. setting FROM date to 01/01/2018 and TO date to 31/12/2018 in the 2017/18 Tax year would calculate a total of 95 days availability of that benefit and then be used to calculate a benefit-in-kind value as such. e.g. a £750 annual premium divided 365 x 95 = £195.21

Remove/Delete Benefit records

Benefit records can be deleted using the delete button from the Benefit Profile screen. The deletion/removal is per Tax year, so assigned benefit records and categories that are no longer required can be safely deleted for the selected tax year but still available in previous years.



Using the "Delete" button to delete the benefit record will offer to firstly to delete any benefit records assigned in the current Tax year. 

This deletion process is password protected so as to prevent any unintended deletions and will ask the user to confirm their password before removing both the benefits & employee records.
