Hi, I was made redundant in September 2021. I received £38,650 as redundancy pay. This was paid along with 3 month's notice and holiday pay so I cannot work out tax paid on the redundancy pay. I have reported pay from this employer (excluding redundancy pay of £38,650) in the employment section, along with total tax paid while employed at that company (including tax pay on redundancy pay). I have included £30,000 as exempt redundancy pay and £8,650 as taxable redundancy pay - both under 'other income'. Is this correct? I have no way of splitting the tax between normal income and other income. My return is flagging a 'warning' that the tax within the employment income section looks unusually high (because it includes tax paid on redundancy pay). Thanks.

The redundancy payment should be declared at additional information so you will need to tailor your return to include this if filing online.

Refer to guidance at:

Self Assessment: additional information (SA101)

Thank you.

Hi, Yes I have included redundancy payment as other income but I have no way of separating tax the tax between redundancy and normal pay because I received it all as one sum. At the moment I have included the total tax paid in the employment section. Is this correct?
