In October I wrote about our old chum Phil Pavitt, who apparently had been moved from his role as HMRC's ubiquitous Chief Information Officer:
"I see Pavitt is no longer HMRC CIO. Apparently he has been replaced by his deputy Mark Hall. Pavitt's new title is something like Director General of Security and Information etc.One day later I noted that he had in fact been "promoted" to "Director General Change, Security and Information".
Anyone know if this is promotion, demotion or a move sideways.
Maybe he is just getting off the track before the RTI and Universal Credit express smashes into the buffers killing all on board and letting his underling take all the blame for any train wreck."
Now here's the "funny" thing, that promotion appears to be pointless (unless it was designed to move him away from RTI).
Pavitt is leaving HMRC.
He is joining Aviva in January.
RTI of course won't be live in January, funny that!
Tax does have to be taxing.
