Enhancing reputation through seamless tax reporting processes
It is increasingly common for organisations to have a mixture of executive and non-executive directors on their boards and committees. They are expected to demonstrate strong oversight, provide strategic guidance, and implement effective governance and robust risk management for the organisation. It is against this backdrop of corporate responsibility, and fundamental to the reputation of the company, that director’s remuneration in its broadest sense, is reported accurately, and taxed in the right place,
the right time
Often the directors
of UK boards, whether executive or non-executive, reside in the UK or overseas, travel
or within the UK for
and business meetings on a regular
basis. They may also have simultaneous
directorship appointments on other boards, either within a group structure, or in various locations for other
security and payroll
for directors’ remuneration and expenses can
complex, particularly so for those who reside outside of the UK where cross-border compliance and reporting issues frequently arise.
HMRC activity and approach
increasing its focus
remuneration and expenses through their ‘Know
Customer’ meetings and specific enquiries into how organisations are managing their compliance obligations in respect of their UK and overseas based board directors.
Many large organisations appoint executive and non-executive directors to oversee the activities of the company. These directors may reside both in or outside of the UK and often hold other directorship appointments across the globe.This can create complex UK reporting and compliance obligations for both the company and the individual whether in respect of attendance at board meetings, performance of broader director duties or activities in connection with an overseas role.With increasing focus from HMRC on directors’ arrangements and an evolving landscape around directors’ remuneration disclosures, it is imperative that organisations review their processes and controls for managing the tax and social security position for their directors and how this links into remuneration disclosures.
UK board directors who reside in the UK – There are very limited circumstances in which the remuneration of UK board directors’, whether executive or non-executive, can be paid gross outside of payroll. The interposition of an intermediary, such as a personal service company (PSC), is unlikely to alter this position;UK board directors who reside outside of the UK and global executives employed by overseas companies who travel to attend board and other business meetings in the UK – There are UK tax, social security and payroll withholding and reporting obligations to consider; andPayment of expenses and benefits and reporting in a compliant manner e.g. flights, accommodation and subsistence costs. Many organisations assume, incorrectly, that board directors’ expenses can be paid free of tax.
Your directors are your most visible representatives. Ensuring your organisation is compliant in this area is key.
There can often be significant amounts of UK tax and potential NIC at stake for organisations who get it wrong.
Managing the director population in an organisation can sit across several functions; from company secretariat, reward, tax, finance and payroll. Ensuring that there is a joined-up process to tax reporting within a fit for purpose governance framework, is key.
Coupled with the change in remuneration disclosures
and the spotlight on executive pay, failure to review your directors’ tax and social security requirements can leave
your organisation exposed to cost and reputational risks. Slide2
