Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

Employees can receive up to £30,000 as a ‘qualifying termination payment’ free of tax and National insurance. This amount includes any statutory redundancy pay to which you are entitled. If you receive more than £30,000, then the extra amounts over the £30,000 limit are taxable.

Some payments which are made when someone is made redundant are always taxable. These include amounts which are paid under a contact of employment such holiday pay, bonuses, and arrears of pay. Payments in lieu of notice may be taxable or not. The exact position depends on a range of factors that will include the employee’s contract of employment, when notice of redundancy was given and how the pay in lieu of notice has been calculated.
