Reconcile individual: end of year reconciliation: redundancy repayment calculation (Action Guide)

Note: For the purposes of this guidance ‘redundancy payment’ refers to any lump sum termination payment / loss of office payment received by the customer.

An end of year review will arise where the individual has previously claimed on form OCA91 an in-year repayment of any higher or additional rate tax for a redundancy payment received whilst claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) or Employment Support Allowance (ESA), action guide tax40085 refers.

You will have to hand, either

  • a manual work item created for the issue of form OCA92 after the end of the tax year
    or
  • a completed end of year version of form OCA92 completed by the customer

To action, follow steps 1 - 5 below

  1. Is there an existing PAYE Service record?
  • yes, go to step 2

 

  • no, go to step 5
  1. Where there is an existing record
  • If the existing PAYE record is live, go to step 3

 

  • If the existing PAYE record is ceased, go to step 4
  1. The system will automatically reconcile the year after 6 April and include the in-year repayment.

If the in-year repayment was made prior to 5 April 2015 it will pick up any in-year repayment on the Record Manual Repayment screen.

If the result of the informal calculation is a further repayment of any amount  - issue the repayment to the customer

If the result of the informal calculation is an underpayment of any amount - treat this as an over-repayment of tax and issue the informal calculation to the customer, telling them how you intend to collect the underpayment
