To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer
(1) how many staff HM Revenue and Customs expects to dedicate to administering the transferable tax allowance (a) in its first year of operation and (b) each year thereafter;
(2) what estimate he has made of the cost to HM Revenue and Customs of administering the transferable tax allowance in (a) its first year of operation and (b) each year thereafter.
The detail of how this policy will be administered by HMRC is being developed. HMRC will ensure that the process will be simple for customers.
