Quick Poll results: 49% of companies use P11Ds to report taxable benefits 23 April 2021

The CIPP’s latest Quick Poll addressed which process businesses use to report taxable benefits – do they use P11Ds, do they payroll benefits or do they use a combination of both?

The results highlighted that 49% of companies use the legacy process of submitting P11Ds to both employees and HMRC in relation to taxable benefits. 20% of respondents confirmed that they have chosen to process taxable benefits through the payroll in real time, whilst 31% stated that they use a combination of both. The predominant reason for employers using a combination of both methods is because not all benefits can be processed via payroll. Elements such as employer-provided living accommodation and interest-free and low-interest loans cannot be processed via payroll, and still need to be recorded on P11Ds.

New Quick Poll: supply chains 23 April 2021

The CIPP’s Policy and Research team has published a new Quick Poll, which explores certain supply chains within companies.

The latest question asks:

“Does your business transfer staff, and the a ssociated payroll responsibilities to another company, who provide the staff back to the business at a cost?”

We are aware that payroll professionals are extremely busy at present, but we really appreciate the feedback we receive, that often feeds into wider research. The latest Quick Poll should take less than a minute to respond to.

CIPP survey: LPC minimum wage rates for 2022 26 April 2021

The CIPP’s Policy and Research team will be submitting a formal written response to the Low Pay Commission’s (LPC) consultation that centres on what the National Living Wage (NLW) and National Minimum Wage (NMW) rates should be from April 2022. In order to collate your views, we have assembled a survey for you to complete, which will allow you to have your say and potentially shape the future of the NLW and NMW rates that will be applied next year. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete, and we know how busy payroll professionals are, particularly at the moment, so we really appreciate any time and effort taken to contribute.

The survey invites feedback and opinions on:

• The impacts of coronavirus, in particular on both employers and workers in lower-paying sectors • The affordability of the NLW rates proposed for 2022 and, in the longer-term, for 2024 • The intention of reducing the NLW age to 21 by 2024 • The effects of the NLW since it was introduced in April 2016
