The following Employment Tax guidance note by Tolley in association with Sue El Hachmi of Osborne Clarke LLP provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
Redundancy payments fall into two categories: statutory payments and non-statutory payments (see the Non-statutory redundancy pay guidance note).
Statutory redundancy is the amount which must be paid by the employer to the employee under employment law and will be a fixed amount for each year of service. Statutory redundancy pay is usually exempt from tax.
An employee is entitled to a statutory redundancy payment if he is made redundant after being continuously employed by the employer for at least two years.
