HMRC are an impartial and increasingly effective and efficient tax and payments authority, with a vital purpose: to collect the money that pays for the UK’s public services and help families and individuals with targeted financial support.
As part of HMRC’s continued drive to increase tax compliance to narrow the £36 billion tax gap, HMRC have embarked on a major transformational programme to redirect more of HMRC’s people and resources to compliance activities, modernising systems and re-engineering processes to become more customer-orientated. HMRC are bringing 61,000 staff together from 170 to 13 modern offices across the country.
