Donna Sharp and Mike Lavan take a look at some of the recent changes being made to the taxation of termination payments.
Recent changes to the taxation of termination payments have been driven by the Government’s desire to provide certainty for employees and employers on the tax and NIC treatment of termination payments, to simplify the current rules, and to ensure that rules are fair and not open to “abuse or manipulation” – while of course, ensuring that the Exchequer does not lose out.
