View Article  Payslips Plus- Taxable and none taxable benefits
Most benefits are taxable particularly when it is paid as a set amount each month, this will be shown on your payslips. For example if you are paid car allowance this will be shown as a set amount on your payslips every month and this is most certainly taxable, but if you claim mileage from your employer the first 10,000 miles at 40p per mile is not taxable and then you can claim 26p per mile thereafter. This will be shown on your payslips but isn't taxable. If you are paid a set amount for travel expenses each month, again this will be taxable but if you claim travel expenses from your employer for business expenses( travelling to work and back is not classed as a business expense) you will need to produce receipts but this can be paid as a none taxable payment and again can be shown on your payslips. The general rule of thumb is that if you claim for a business expense an produce a receipt then this is not taxable but if your paid a set amount each month for business expenses, like an allowance then this becomes taxable.
