Newsletter February 2009
|Newsletter February 2009|
This month our newsletter includes some of the tax implications of redundancy payments; a pre tax year end check list for the self employed; a comment on the effects of exchange rate fluctuations if you sell property abroad; and finally an update from HMRC on advisory fuel rates, the tax status of bonus payments to pensioners, and an announced further offshore disclosure facility.
Our next newsletter will be published on Thursday 5 March.
The notes that follow highlight a few but not all of the considerations that affect redundancy pay outs:
Q. Do I pay tax or National Insurance on my redundancy payment?
Q. Where can I get impartial advice on my rights if I am made redundant?
Q. What happens if I receive a company car or other goods in lieu of a redundancy payment?
Q. What happens if my employer cannot afford to pay me the statutory redundancy that I am due?
Q. If I receive a terminal bonus or payment for doing extra work leading up to redundancy, is this tax free?
Q. Do I qualify for statutory redundancy if I have worked for an employer for one year?
If you have concerns about redundancy as an employer or employee we would be happy to discuss the issues with you.
