HMRC is reshaping to become a modern, flexible and cost-effective organisation, occupying fewer offices, and able to maximise revenue yield through increased compliance, greater capacity for digital business and by providing better, more personal services for its customers. Around 6,000 staff leave the department each year through resignations, retirements, and for other reasons. It is not possible to reliably calculate the exact number of years of experience which this equates to in any given year, as HMRC does not hold all the data necessary to adjust for those who are part-time, those who had career breaks, or those who worked other reduced working patterns.
