Assuming the first £30,000 of your redundancy payment is tax free, the taxable balance will be included in the calculation of your adjusted net income purposes of the personal allowance.

Take a look here on adjusted net income. You lose £1 of the personal allowance £2 of taxable income over £100,000.

I hope this helps but let me know if you have any furthjer questions.
