Accountancy Age reports that HMRC will merge its specialist investigations and criminal investigations teams, in order to target serious tax crime more effectively.
HMRC stated that the merger will allow it to "better share expertise and knowledge" and be "more effective in tackling the most serious tax crime."
It said the decision "is not about reducing staff or saving money" and that it doesn't anticipate any major costs associated with the change.
So then, how many staff will be made redundant and what are the anticipated savings?
Tax does have to be taxing.
