With Christmas fast approaching, as an employer you will want to be conscious of the potential tax implications that can arise around the provision of gifts and entertaining to your employees during the festive season.
As we come to the end of 2021 and move forward to the end of the 2021/22 tax year, we are coming up to the P11D reporting period for employee benefits. While P11Ds may be something you have completed for a number of years, it may be worthwhile moving to the Payrolling Benefits scheme from April 2022. This could help streamline and simplify your employee benefit reporting.
Given the close proximity and strong business ties with the UK, Denmark is an attractive location for UK companies to operate in.

Employees who have been required to work from home, even if only for one day, are entitled to claim tax relief. This relief is not, however, available to those who choose to work from home.
