PAYE on redundancy payments
Apparently, HMRC want to change the taxation of redundancy payments from 6th April, and tax the excess over £30,000 using code OT. This would result in HMRC getting lots of interest free loans, and the ex-employees would have the hassle of claiming it back after the year end. So far, I've seen nothing on it except Money Box 19th February. It's the last item, about 21 minutes in.
Is this being resisted by the profession? Does anyone know what's going on?
