Made redundant. Got PILON, holiday and salary today (my usual pay day). All taxed at 40%! Could someone let me know what I need to do to get it corrected. The compromise agreement I signed said that tax would be deducted at basic rate and it would be up to me to pay difference to HMRC. Looking at previous payslips I usually pay 28% so I don't understand why all of it seems to have been paid at 40%. Financially the last thing I need at the moment too.
