Stay tax savvy

September 04, 2018


Workers are offered the choice of two severance accounts. The default is our Termination Account which allows you to claim payment in a wider range of circumstances however the Genuine Redundancy Account provides for tax-free redundancy payments to workers, with higher claim limits.

For example, the Genuine Redundancy Account's tax free threshold for 2018/2019 is:
$10,399 for the initial year and $5,200 for each subsequent full year of service with your employer.

Knowing the different tax implications will help you determine the right account for you. Learn more at the Worker Area of our website.
