The issue of redundancy tax can be a confusing one. Compromise agreements usually contain tax indemnities, meaning if Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) makes claims for penalties from an ex-employer, the ex-employee has to indemnify the ex-employer for any taxes due. This would apply if for example, there has been a miscalculation of taxes payable under the compromise agreement.

It is advisable to have a provision in a compromise agreement to the effect that, in the event that HMRC issues a penalty against the ex-employer in relation to the ex-employee, the ex-employee then has the opportunity to discuss the penalty with the revenue services (at the employee’s cost) before the ex-employer makes payment.
