When the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) office at Elgin closes the work undertaken there relating to the whisky industry will relocate to Aberdeen. HMRC's expectation is that the Elgin staff currently involved with the whisky industry would relocate with their work if able to do so, enabling them to use their existing skills and expertise alongside staff in Aberdeen with whisky industry experience already in place there.
