What is a P87?

The P87 form is a document for declaring all expenses incurred during your employment, provided these total less than £2,500.

This is then used to claim tax relief, which means that you may not have to pay tax on income that you spend on business expenses.

The P87 covers business mileage, accommodation and meals, and other general expenses. This means that if you use any of these in the course of your work, you may need to complete a P87 to claim tax relief. If your employment-related expenses total £2,500 or more, you generally need to complete a Self-Assessment Tax Return instead.

You should also use the P87 form to inform HMRC about any business-related expenses that your employer pays to you.
