Reporting and paying the tax If the taxable element of the termination payment is made before the P45 issued, tax and NI (where applicable) must be collected by the employer via PAYE in the usual way.

If this results in excess tax being deducted, the employee can claim a repayment from HMRC.

The ancient trading route between east and west.Its cities were centres of commerce, culture and learning influenced by the achievements of such conquerors as Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan, and it was home to one of the mightiest of all warlords . Tamerlane.It was Tamerlane’s rule at the end of the 14th century that saw the birth of the architectural style known as Timurid, seen in the glazed majolica tiles and mosaics of azure and turquoise which decorate the domes and facades of the many mosques, medressas and mausoleums.I travelled to the capital city Tashkent, a relatively modern city with a strong Russian influence dating back to the days of the Tsars.The important state museums of national history and art are based here and are certainly worth a visit, but it wasn’t until I set off along the route of the Silk Road that I felt my journey had really begun.My first stop along the way was the 2750 year old city of Samarkand. This had been Tamerlane’s capital and was also his burial place, and the monuments built by him and his descendants are to be found across the city.In fact, Samarkand is home to what is truly one of the wonders of the world . The Registan, a large, central square surrounded on three sides by the imposing Tilla kari, Ulugbek and Sher Dor medressas, the latter two flanked by towering minarets.As well as the burial place of Tamerlane, it contains his greatest architectural achievement, the enormous Bibi Khanym mosque.Another sight not to be missed is the Shah I Zinda burial complex, an avenue of beautifully decorated mausoleums.Staying in one of the many modern hotels in the city, I found it was easy to navigate my way around the streets, tree lined avenues and parks of Samarkand, and all the main sights were within easy walking distance of each other.Following the decline of the Timurid dynasty, other cities in the area rose to prominence as the seats of independent khanates. Bukhara, to the west, was one of these and was, at one time, the intellectual centre of the Islamic world.Once famous for the many pools around which its public squares were built, now just the main one, Lyabi Hauz, still remains.
