I see that somehow or other, HMRC managed to overpay 134 of its staff last year by a total of £1.2M. Not, it would seem, a one off event.
A spokesperson for HMRC said that most overpaid salaries over the last financial year have now been repaid.
Quoted by economia:
“We take recovery of any overpaid salaries extremely seriously. The percentage overpaid is around 0.5% of our total salary costs.This appears to be an ongoing issue.
We are continuously seeking to improve the accuracy of our payment and over the last five years the amount overpaid to employees has reduced over 20%.”
Does anyone know why HMRC can't get its payroll right?
Tax does have to be taxing.
