If an individual has received a copy of the P11D from the Employer for SA Return completion then the information has to be entered on the Employment page under the heading “Benefits from your employment-use your form P11D or equivalent information.

Please refer to the SA102 notes which confirms what the letters stand for. Letter E refers to Box 12 of the Employment page for the excess mileage allowance. If the individual was paid a mileage allowance for using own car for work over the approved mileage rate them put in the figures in section E of the P11D in Box 12. Online the heading will be “Vouchers, credit cards and excess mileage allowance”

Please refer to the following link;
