The following Employment Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley in association with Philip Rutherford provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
The payment of a child’s school fees on behalf of an employee is an uncommon benefit. Unlike the provision of childcare, or the award of scholarships, there is no general exemption in place for the payment of school fees.
The payment of school fees on behalf of an employee is treated as though the employer has settled a pecuniary liability of the employee. This determines the tax, NIC and reporting requirements associated with the payment.
The first example is where an employee pays for the school fees and the employer reimburses part of all of the fees in question.
In this case the amount reimbursed is treated as earnings.
