I thought I was putting my question to a Australian expert as I am Australian and work and live in Australia
Your question came through into the UK tax forum, so I have sent a message to the customer services to transfer your question to the Australian tax forum, but as the site operates on USA time it may be a few hours before this is transferred.

My name is Leon and I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question.
On what basis do you say that your redundancy is tax free?
Getting a new job with the same company is irrelevant.
All income received is simply added and taxed as a whole. It doe snot change the fact your received a redundancy or the tax on that redundancy.
But redundancies are not tax free and I am surprised you said that.
Depending on how the redundancy is made up there is some tax on it.
