Do you need to report food and grocery expenses to HMRC?

If you, as an employer, provide food or groceries (which have no resale value) to your employees or directors, you need to report this to HMRC. The cost of these items needs to be reported on your P11D form and you will need to pay Class 1A National Insurance on the cost of those items to you.

If the provision of food and groceries forms part of a salary sacrifice arrangement, and the amount of salary given up is greater than the cost of the food and grocery items, you need to report the salary amount to HMRC on your P11D instead. This only applies to salary sacrifice arrangements made after 6th April 2017.
