This API is one of a number of APIs that provide information that HMRC knows about an individual's tax affairs.

This API in particular provides information about an employee’s or director’s benefits for a given tax year, as reported to HMRC by their employer(s) through the PAYE process. For example company cars and fuel, interest-free and low interest loans, private medical and dental insurance.

For more information, see HMRC’s A-Z guide to expenses and benefits

The primary intended use for this information is to pre-populate an individual's Self Assessment tax return.



You can use the sandbox environment to test this API.

It supports stateful behaviour. You can set up test data using the Individual PAYE Test Support API.
