My role was made redundant in Sept 2021. This was decided retrospectively by an Employment Tribunal judgment in August 2022, and I was awarded a redundancy payment, compensation for loss of notice, and arrears of unpaid wages (for June-Sept 2021).
November 2022 - I received the redundancy payment from the RPS.
October 2023 - I received the compensation for loss of notice, and some of the arrears of unpaid wages from the RPS. I had been unable to previously claim for these components until the company was legally insolvent.
When filling out my Self Assessment, should each of these payments be included in the tax years in which they were received?
The arrears of wages in particular I'm unclear whether tax and NI should be calculated on when they were received from RPS (Oct 2023) or when the wages should have originally been paid (June-Sept 2021).
Thank you in advance for your help,
