The controversial Redundancy Scheme in 2008 had not received Revenue Approval. The consequence of this, is that many recipients of the payment could face substantial tax bill. I am sure that many of those who opted for this at the time would not have done so if they thought this would happen. Makes you wonder who actually stated that the scheme qualified for Top Slicing Relief and did they even seek Revenue approval.
