According to nfpSynergy, however, this is largely due to greater uncertainty amongst other age groups, and particularly with the over 65s, the life changes that often come with getting older.

This has remained fairly consistent since 2003, according to the nfpSynergy data.Who volunteers?People from a higher social grade are much more likely to volunteer: 25% of those from households in the £40,000 income bracket, and people who have given money in the last three months (23%) are also much more likely to have volunteered in the same period than those who have not (10%).Young people aged 16-34, and the over 65s are more likely to have volunteered for a charity over a three-month period compared to other groups, with students in higher education the most likely group to volunteer: twice as likely in the last four weeks compared to other age groups.Regular worshippers are also more likely to have volunteered in a given three-month period (43%) than others (21%). However, the report suggests that doing unpaid work for a religious group or place of worship could count as volunteering in some of these cases, which may partly explain the differences between volunteering rates of regular and non-regular worshippers.No more gender gapAccording to the report, when it comes to rates of volunteering, the gender gap has closed over the last decade. While women consistently volunteered more than men until 2009, this trend has not persisted over the last five years and the proportion of men and women who have volunteered in a three-month period is the same, at 21%.

Employers hit wall on using ‘golden handshake’ provision

first_imgEmployers hit wall on using ‘golden handshake’ provisionOn 1 Mar 2003 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. TheInland Revenue has introduced new rules that will make it far harder foremployers to avoid tax and national insurance on severance payments.Ithas been possible to make severance payments tax free – usually up to £30,000 –by using the ‘golden handshake’ provisions in the tax legislation.Thelaw states that a severance payment made under a payment in lieu of notice(Pilon) clause will be taxable and subject to national insurance contributions(NIC). Wherethere is no clause or the employer chooses to breach the contract and paydamages, it has been common practice to claim the golden handshake provisionsapply and that no NIC is payable.However,the IR’s new Statement of Practice on the tax treatment of severance paymentssays it will now presume tax and NIC are due whenever a Pilon is made “as anautomatic response to a termination”, even where the employer intends toterminate the contract in breach and pay damages.Ineffect, where there is evidence of a ‘practice’ of making Pilons without givingit much thought, they will be treated as taxable.Thenew regime is likely to lead to disputes between the IR and employers whoassume their severance payments fall within the golden handshake regime.
