Christopher Lee

I have to admit this one shocked me a little bit. Having grown up watching his films, for some reason I had never considered that what I was seeing was not his real hair.



Then I remembered him in The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes where he appeared quite bald looking.



In hindsight it is obvious he has been a wig wearer for much of his career.



My childhood memories have been shattered.

Norwood Rating : probably a 7 by now

  3. 5. Make sure redundancy payouts are tax efficient.

    Julia Whittle of Punter Southall Financial Management says: "This is particularly important for higher rate taxpayers. Only the first 30,000 of any payment is tax free." Anything above this is taxed at your highest rate. So if you are still on your company's payroll then full PAYE Coach Factory Outlet Store deductions will be made on payments over 30,000.

    However if this money is paid after you have left the company and received your P45 then only 20 per cent tax will be deducted immediately. Employees will be required to account for the additional tax in their annual tax return, but as this will not have to be made for another year, this will give them a temporary cash flow advantage in the interim.

    6. Make the most of share options

    Some share option schemes will be lapse on the date you leave but some will offer employees a limited time frame, beyond their redundancy date to exercise these options. This is particularly relevant if you feel that the value of the options is likely to increase substantially over the short to medium term. It will also benefit those whose options exceeds that capital gains tax threshold (currently 9,600). If you can extend this window into the next tax year you can reduce or avoid altogether this tax payment.

    7. Don't cancel your share save scheme

    While managers may be offered generous share options, many staff get valuable benefits through share save schemes. These allow them to contribute money each month in return for company shares, but staff are protected because if the share price falls then they can get their contributions back with interest added.

    As most of these savings plans run for three of five years, coach outlet store online members need to check the policy terms if they face redundancy before the end of the plan. You won't necessarily have to be kicked out when you leave the company, and it may be possible to continue with this savings scheme after the termination of your company. Much is at the discretion of the trustees so you may need to contact them direct. Leaving these scheme early can mean a loss of tax benefits as well as interest, which is often paid at a different rate if you do not complete the set term.
