Although HMRC offices within Outer London have been grouped into six areas, for most planning purposes Outer London is taken as a whole.

The total number of HMRC staff working in Outer London at 1 October 2006 was 4,374, with the numbers estimated to fall to 3,800 by 2008 and to 3,300 by 2010.

The proposed rationalisation of the HMRC estate in Outer London is estimated to create estate savings of approximately £5.7 million a year.
