Home » Redundancy


Ireland and the big R …If it’s not the Recession in the news, it’s Redundancy!

A redundancy situation arises where one loses their job due to circumstances such as the closure of a business or a mandatory reduction in the number of staff.

The amount of redundancy payment one receives varies per circumstance and employer. A statutory redundancy lump-sum, which by law must be paid, is entirely tax-free. Only payments above and beyond the statutory payment (an ex-gratia payment) are taxable.

However, if you have been made redundant, it may not be all doom and gloom …

In general, redundancy payments qualify for special tax treatment – ex-gratia payments may even be exempt from tax or may qualify for additional relief from tax.
