How Will the Taxation of Termination Payments Change?

Due Date

Postponed from April 2019 to April 2020

Summary

The Government is consulting on changes to termination payments which will see a widening of payments which qualify for Income Tax and National Insurance.

Termination payments in excess of £30,000 will be subject to employer Class 1A National Insurance contributions. Employee payments in excess of £30,000 will still attract tax and no National Insurance contributions, as they do now. The abolition of Class 2 NICs and changes to Sporting Testimonials have also been postponed.
