We are revisiting the issue of payment in lieu of notice from a different angle this time especially in relation to redundancy. We are being asked by a number of employers and employees whether they could get around the issue of taxation of notice periods (PILON). One of the ways that we have considered to achieve this is to ensure that any payments are treated in the compromise agreements as severance pay and not treated as PILON. The revenue may still challenge whether the payments are severance pay or contractual rights and therefore subject to tax and NI contributions.
