GUIDANCE ON REFERENCING
(Supplied by Academic Misconduct Officer)
The attention of every student is drawn to the warning in the course guide on late submission of coursework, mitigating circumstances and plagiarism. Correct referencing is an academic skill that you will be assessed on.
Correct referencing demonstrates that you have read appropriately on the subject, shows that you are acknowledging the sources you have used (that you are not trying to cheat) and provide information on useful sources of information to your reader.
Doing it correctly demonstrates professionalism. Doing it incorrectly will lead to reduced marks and possibly to disciplinary action, which includes the possibility of having your studies terminated. 2

PART 1 – Impact of taxes and tax planning – Financial Act 2019
A partner of your accountancy firm has requested you to prepare detailed notes on the impact of redundancy pay. During this brief meeting with you, the partner said the following, “When the employment of an employee ends prematurely (i.e. before reaching the retirement age or by resignation of the employee), it is called termination of the employment. Ordinarily this type of termination is initiated by the employer, therefore, breaching the employment contract between themselves and the employee. As a result, employers usually offer the employee some benefits at the time of termination to settle the breach of employment contract.”
The partner required you prepare a note that discusses the taxation of various benefits provided to the employees when their employment contract is terminated. Specifically, the following benefits must be separately discussed among any other benefits that you may come across in your research.
The discussion should also include how to determine whether benefits are being paid as ‘services rendered under employment’ or ‘as compensation for breach of the employment contract’.
References to the relevant sections of the legislation (section 62 & sections 401- 416 ITEPA 2003) will enable you to secure higher marks.
Present your detailed notes in a report format.
Your summary should be detailed enough to be a basis for the partner to explain the matter to his clients. It may contain examples if that will improve the clarity of your report.
