Last week HMRC announced that 650 people across 70 offices in the UK will be made redundant.
As per PCS:
"This includes almost 200 administrative workers in 'local compliance' offices, helping to ensure taxpayers pay what is due.Meanwhile, a loyal reader advises me that members of the public are turning up his HMRC office doorstep wanting help on tax related matters.
It means officials in higher grades will have to spend more time on support work, such as handling post and taking deliveries, leaving them less time for their normal duties."
Fair enough, except that this particular office is undergoing an internal move/reorganisation, wherein 130 staff are being shifted to 2 floors with "tiny desks". Thus they are a tad tied up.
The task of the day, so that they can fit into their tiny desks and less space, being "declutter"!
In other news Building Our Future II is looming, wherein the laptops required for the event are delivered only one day beforehand (so as to maintain secrecy).
Tax does have to be taxing.
