At the start of the pandemic, HMRC worked at pace to design and administer the Covid-19 support schemes, enabling payments to be made quickly to those in need. Staff were redeployed from across the Customer Compliance Group (CCG) to support activities related to the Covid-19 schemes.

In 2020-21, there were 1,357 existing CCG Staff redeployed to work on the Covid-19 schemes administered by HMRC.

In 2021-22, there were 1,249 existing CCG Staff redeployed to work on the Covid-19 schemes administered by HMRC.
