Covid Delays HMRC's Hubs

Financial secretary to the Treasury, Jesse Norman, has admitted that HMRC's plan for 13 region hubs plan has been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.

In a written Commons answer, Norman told MPs:

"HMRC recognise that covid-19 is having an impact on construction and fit-out of their new regional centres and that this poses a risk to scheduled delivery timescales.

HMRC’s initial planning has been on the basis that construction activity will be delayed by about three months, with a further month to remobilise fully."

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. Given the way the virus has shown that there are better ways of working than 5,000 people huddled into one building after a long commute, I would say "hubs" with their 25 year leases, are already obsolete!
