• Calculate the correct amount to withhold

    To calculate the correct amount to be withheld from a payment of unused annual leave, you will need to know:

    • how much of the payment relates to unused annual leave
    • how much of the payment relates to a bonus or additional payment relating to that leave
    • whether or not the payment is being made for early termination of employment    
      • through genuine redundancy
      • through invalidity
      • as part of an early retirement scheme
    • if the payment is not being made under any of the above, how much of the payment is for leave accrued on or after 18 August 1993.
