How to complete the benefit in kind form
There are two options for an employer or tax practitioner when a benefit in kind form is required to be completed:
- manually complete a paper form T9 or
- complete an online T9, if enrolled for online tax employer services (further information about enrolling is available at about online tax services)
Both the manual and online versions of the form T9 mirror each other, to make completion of either format a similar process.
T9 in conjunction with electronic payroll package
Employers who use electronic payroll software can submit their annual return online and attach the payroll file with the return, rather than manually send a disc. However, the online T9 cannot currently be completed in these cases and will therefore have to be completed manually, or a scanned image attached to the online return, in the same manner as the payroll file.
