is non-statutory redundancy pay taxable

Two employees have been made redundant - one with several years service so qualifies for stat redundancy pay - ok no problems in processing that but the second employee has only been here for a year and therefore does not qualify.  No redundancy package in the contract of employment.  The boss wants to make a redundancy payment as a gesture of goodwill - say £500 - is this taxable/NIiable - can't find a definitive answer and need to run the final payroll.  I interpret that as a normal payment - help!
