HMRC Buys Some Land In Stratford


I understand that a rumour has been circulating around local HMRC offices, that a large plot of land had been purchased by HMRC in Stratford.

For why?

It seems to be connected to other rumours namely that Euston Tower may close down by 2018, and along with other local offices closing all staff will be made to move to one office (the Strategic Hub).

Apparently surplus AA's will be made redundant (a decision may well be announced next week), and local offices are getting rid of staff with considerable experience. AO's will be left to absorb the duties currently performed by the AA's. This in spite of the fact that at local offices there is a shortage of staff, and sick leave is going through the roof.

This restructuring is all part of HMRC's 2020 Digital Vision.

I don't suppose anyone knows how much HMRC paid for the land do they?


Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. I'm getting de ja vu I have heard those words "surplus AA's will be made redundant (a decision may well be announced next week), and local offices are getting rid of staff with considerable experience. AO's will be left to absorb the duties currently performed by the AA's." before.

    Trouble with HMRC is they don't think, years ago I suggested they would be better building one big office at Meadowhall in Sheffield, this would allow staff from most areas of Yorkshire & North Mids to get to an office within an hour or so, big transport facilities etc but they chose to keep shutting offices down one by one forcing people to move to areas that were more than an hour travel away etc.

    This idea isn't good for the AA's and the extra work but having a larger hub in London is much better than smaller offices everywhere, if only they were doing it out of logic and not cost cutting.

  2. I have heard from a reliable source that HMRC are looking at moving into what was the media centre for the Olympics, an office that is already wired for any computer system. Plenty of room for everyone (except AA's who Excom do not think offer anything to the business-totally blinkered).

  3. Nice to hear comments supporting the AA role. I am one of this endangered "species" awaiting the dreaded push. Have to say that my colleagues including our Grade 6 think it is madness as I am the only one left from an original team of 3. Am expecting to be gone at the end of this tax year along with most of the remaining AAs. My sympathies go to the AOs who will have to take up the slack on top of the extra work they already "enjoy".
