Receipt and entitlement of earnings

Settlement in 2017-18 to include wages due in 2016-17

Didn't find your answer?

Good afternoon,

The client has taken his previous employer to an employment tribunal over unfair dismissal and unpaid wages for work done in 2016-17. It is not clear yet whether an agreement will be reached out of court and what elements will constitute the settlement; however he is likely to receive an amount for unpaid wages. I am trying to determine in what year the back payment would be assessed. I believe it would be taxed in the year when he was entitled to earnings rather than the date of receipt.

Would someone kindly confirm this?

Many thanks
