Why work for HMRC?

Our vision

We are the UK's tax, payments and customs authority, and we have a vital purpose: we collect the money that pays for the UK’s public services and help families and individuals with targeted financial support. We do this by being impartial and increasingly effective and efficient in our administration. We help the honest majority to get their tax right and make it hard for the dishonest minority to cheat the system.

Our strategic objectives

HMRC Strategic Objectives

Maximise revenues due and bear down on avoidance and evasion

The vast majority of our customers pay the tax they owe and do not attempt to avoid their responsibilities. But, for those who do try to avoid paying what’s due, we will be relentless in our crackdown on tax evasion and avoidance.

Transform tax and payments for our customers

We will transform the tax system by introducing simple, secure and personalised digital tax accounts which will remove the need for annual tax returns.

This will give individuals, businesses and their agents a more convenient and real-time view of their tax affairs, so they can easily see the tax they owe and what payments they are due to receive.

Design and deliver a professional, efficient and engaged organisation

We are improving and changing the way we work to increase productivity and at the same time maximise efficiency savings.

We are also making sure we have the right people with the right skills in the right roles, being managed by motivated and capable leaders.
