Questions For Mike Falvey

Mike Falvey (Chief People Officer HMRC) has featured a few times recently on this site, and as such has prompted a loyal reader to advise me of this company that was formed in 2005:

It's function?

 "Human resources provision and management of human resources functions".

I have three questions:

1 Is this the same Mike Falvey who earns at least £175K per annum as Chief People Officer of HMRC?

2 If so, please can HMRC/Falvey confirm that none of his salary was ever paid into this company?

3 If any salary was ever paid into the company; how much, when and why?

Thank you.

Tax does have to be taxing.

  2. Do I detect aa FOI request in the making or might this already (please!) have reached the realm of Margaret Hodge and co?
    Wonder for example which organisation supplied those useless happy clappy roadshows that involved voting with sweet wrappers FFS!!!
    The stench emanating from this organisation and its management should carry more than a government health warning, its highly toxic and increasing.

    1. I tweeted Margaret Hodge about it this morning, and also HMRC.

  3. I'm surprised that the tax dodgers who infest this site aren't in favour of a bit of creative accounting. Hypocrites- doncha luv 'em?

    1. Pls explain @ 18:45 who are the hypocritical tax dodgers you refer to, just to clarify...

  4. Wouldn't it be funny if Anonymous at 18.45 was George Osborne. :)
