Payrolling of benefits: From the start of the tax year 2016/17, employers can account for the tax on benefits provided to employees through PAYE each pay day. Employers must register with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) using the online Payrolling Benefits in Kind (PBIK) service before 6th April 2016 to start payrolling for tax year 2016/17.

HMRC will amend tax codes before the start of the tax year to remove any benefits previously included. In later years employers changing over to payrolling must register well before the start of the tax year.

Registering with HMRC allows you to payroll tax on benefits without the need to submit a form P11D after the end of the tax year. You can register with HMRC using the PBIKs service
