What if I have limited budget?
Please note that even if you do not have sufficient budget to provide outplacement support, there are things that you can do, at no cost to your organisation, which can substantially help the individual to find another job.
Outplacement is a non-taxable benefit when provided as part of a redundancy settlement. If, with the agreement of the individual, you process the outplacement invoice and deduct the net amount payable from their redundancy settlement, there will be a considerable saving (both tax and VAT) compared with if the individual paid for it directly. Where budget is limited or non-existent, this can be an enormously helpful option.
Please contact us for more information on this.
