HMRC requests that staff voluntarily and confidentially record their ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief, gender identity and carer details.
The recording of diversity information is not mandatory, but we ask all HMRC employees to consider the reasons why diversity information is important for individuals and the Organisation.
As a responsible employer, HMRC need to make sure that their policies and procedures do not discriminate against any particular group.
HMRC do not publish the information in the form requested. The ethnicity data that HMRC do publish is available in the Public Sector Equality Duty annual compliance report HMRC: Public Sector Equality Duty compliance 2021 to 2022 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) and in the Annual Report & Accounts HMRC annual report and accounts: 2021 to 2022 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
