Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Under s.401 - 416 of the Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003, genuine redundancy payments (in accordance with the Employment Rights Act ) up to £30,000 will be tax free. So long as your employer can demonstrate that at the time of the payment the redundancy was genuine then you should not have to pay tax on the payment.
As you are taking a job back with the same job title, this may be investigated by HMRC, your employer should support your position that this should be tax free.
If you have any further questions please do ask.
Yes I think that this will support your argument that it is a different position and you were entitled to receive a redundancy payment. Under those circumstances I cannot see how they can argue that tax should be paid.
If you would like to know anything further please let me know , If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best in your new role.
No I don't have access to that information, I think it is likely that they are though. You can easily check this on the companies house website under company search. https://www.gov.uk/get-information-about-a-company .
Even if they are the same company you will not have to pay back unless the original redundancy was a sham which does not seem to be the case.
no problem, please do remember to rate my answer as I am not otherwise credited for my time.
