Security and Outsourcing
It seems that the government and HMRC are considering outsourcing certain IT functions to processing offices in India, in an attempt to save £205M per annum.
HMRC and its main IT contractors Capgemini and Fujitsu are considering outsourcing certain IT functions to India under the Quantum cost reduction project.
Staff, the media and politicians speculate that this may mean that tax records will be sent abroad. HMRC deny this.
However, a leaked memo states that the Quantum project included looking at the "potential off-shoring of some future work".
That would indicate that some records will be sent offshore.
Given the lax security standards of Asian processing centres, this proposal needs to be nipped in the bud ASAP.
Tax does have to be taxing.
