Telephone assessment

Speak with one of our advisors to carry out an initial assessment of your outstanding entitlements. We’ll advise on whether you’d be likely to make a successful claim to the Redundancy Payments Service, whether this is the most appropriate route for you, and what the value of any potential claim would be.

Engagement and document sharing

Once you’ve decided you’d like to proceed with us, you’ll instruct us to manage your claim and forward all relevant documentation to support your claim. Where possible, this will all be done online. We’ll give you a list of information we need including for example, payroll documents, company bank statements and the last set of full accounts produced by the company.


We’ll draw up your claim information and forward it to you to review electronically. Once this has been agreed by you, we will submit your application to the Redundancy Payments Service. Normally the RPS will request an initial six week period in which to assess and evaluate your claim.


Once the Redundancy Payments Service has agreed your claim, a notification will be forwarded to you and you’ll receive payment into your nominated bank account within approximately five to seven days.


We like to keep it simple. We charge 15% of the claim paid plus VAT.
