It was a redundancy payment - tax deducted (paid via first payroll of the 2014/5 tax year, received a payslip) tax code OT Cumulative
So am I correct that because my agreement specifically said that payment would be made after the first payroll following the termination date (specified as April 5th) that date is when the payment becomes assessable as well as being the date that it is paid for the purposes of determining the assessment year?
Its a bit of a relief if so as I haven't worked this year since leaving as we're heading to Canada and I was hoping the tax timing would work in my favour!
