As Lin Homer walks away with a £2.174million pension pot (lifetime allowances anyone?) we should not be too envious as, according to HMRC:
"Her pension is actuarially-reduced, because she is leaving before retirement age. She is receiving no severance compensation.”Additionally, as and when she starts to look for work again after a summer break, she will try not to take a "revolving door" type role:
"I will be fully sensitive to the responsibility and care that senior HMRC officials should take when considering the appropriateness of potential roles and organisations."That's fine then, because no other ex senior HMRC has ever taken up a "revolving door" role!
In the meantime, I did try to call her to congratulate her. Unfortunately there is at least a 45 minute waiting time on the lines, and were I to send her a congratulatory card it would not be opened until after she had left.
Tax does have to be taxing.
