childcare vouchers through a salary sacrifice

(4 Posts)

Wondered if anyone could help me. If I sacrifice salary to receive childcare vouchers (�243 per month), should the total amount of vouchers be reflected on my P11D and therefore reduce the amount of personal allowance available to me?

For clarity I sacrifice salary to an equal amount of the vouchers received.

Many thanks

No, they are tax-free (up to a limit that depends on your income tax band) so the amount should be deducted from your gross pay and does not impact your tax-free allowance. They should not show up on your P11D AFAIK (well mine certainly don't).

Thanks -that was my understanding too but a colleague is being told something totally different by hr

Then your HR team are dolts! This sort of thing won't appear on the P11D because it isn't a benefit in kind.
