I have resigned and Agreed with my current employer to get paid my 3 month notice pay since I am starting my own business. How much tax is applied to a cash lump sum (3month notice 220k leave pay 70k), can I apply for a tax directive.

Your employer can apply for a directive if the extra money was as a result of you being retrenched. If it is a resignation then you will be taxed according to the normal tax tables.
