(b) HMRC is currently reviewing its plans for 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 as part of its current planning round. It is not possible therefore to breakdown in a more granular form the budgets for 2014-15 and 2015-16.

HMRC's budgets for 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 are:

  £ million
2013-14 3,471
2014-15 3,244
2015-16 3,136
Note: These figures exclude depreciation and capital.

Broadly HMRC expects the staffing costs to reduce and the IT costs to increase, in line with its digital programme, within its overall reductions.
