Civil Service World reports that HMRC is boosting the number of staff who will be based in its new regional hub in east London because of the department's increased Brexit-related workload.
HMRC signed a lease on new office space at Stratford at the end of 2017 with a view to basing 3,800 staff at the hub.
Thompson has now told staff that HMRC will take an additional three floors of the building and base 600 additional staff at Stratford, making it home to 4,400 full-time-equivalent workers.
So, if I understand this correctly, over the past few years HMRC has been making experienced staff redundant only now to start recruiting additional staff who have no experience?
Muddling its way through seems to be the HMRC modus operandi.
Tax does have to be taxing.
