The Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) Reports on Employee Benefits

The office of Tax Simplification (OTS) has published its latest report on employee benefits and hopefully the recommendations will be adopted by HMRC.

The areas OTS are looking at are accommodation benefits, termination payments, removal expenses and long service awards although other items like mileage needs addressing.

I think the accommodation review is long overdue and will help workers understand the complex rules where employers provide short term accommodation, especially for overseas workers coming to the UK.

I welcome the work the OTS does and its objective to try and remove red tape and simplify our tax system can only assist small and medium businesses who cannot afford tax experts.

The report is being treated as a consultation and encourages people to contribute – view report
