Just send your P45 and a note to your tax office, giving details of your termination payment and how much of which was taxed and asking for top slicing relief to be applied. It would help if you had copies of your P60s for the previous 3 years and submitted them too.

Hi Nige,

I'm in a similar situation to jigsaw, but I started a new job 2 months
after being made redundant - and now my new employer has my P45.

Is there any-other document I could use - such the RP50?

Also, do you know if and how we can claim back Health Levies (2%) paid on the Redundancy amount received?

Many Thanks

Karl

Hello Jigsaw,

I am in a similar position to you...in that i was made redundant last year. There is no particular form to fill in for Top Slicing Relief. You just need to send a letter to your local Revenue office stating that you want Top slicing relief applied to your lump sum payment. If you have any documentation (payslip etc) showing your redundancy payment and tax deducted submit this as well.
Submit your P50 with P45 if you havent already done so to claim back any tax refund you are due.
Best of luck on the job front.

Why would you want/not want top slicing applied?

I understand you have to send in your previous 3 years p60,s to your local revenue office, so thats for 2010 2009 2008, is this correct,or do i also need a p60 for 2011, because it was 2011 i received a lump sum and the citizens advise site says i need the 3 previous years p60,s. The revenue people are saying their busy at the minute and to leave it till i have a p60 for 2011,which i do not believe is required, as its the average of the 3 previous years of the lump payment(2011).
