Iv just been charged £40 from this service, and no answer so far. What the hell.

Thank you for your reply.

If the compensation payment includes interest paid to you for delayed settlement of claim, then additional interest paid would attract tax deducted at source at basic rate 20%.

You can earn upto £1000 in interest tax free. The rest is taxable.

You can claim overepayment of tax by completing form R40 if you don't file a tax return.
