Description: HMRC’s transformation is the biggest modernisation of the UK tax system in a generation making fundamental changes to the way it operates. The ambition is to become one of the most digitally-advanced tax authorities in the world. This will be done by becoming a smaller, more highly-skilled and flexible organisation. The Locations Programme is key to HMRC’s wider transformation, by changing the working environment it will help change the way they work. The estate will be made up of 13 Regional Centres, 6 Transitional Sites and 5 Specialist Sites and a London Headquarters. This will enable HMRC to create modern, adaptable work spaces that will support the digital infrastructure, staff collaboration and development that HMRC requires to modernise. This Programme also supports the wider Government agenda to transform the Civil Service estate; all of our chosen locations for HMRC Regional Centres align with the siting of Government Hubs. The Programme will deliver both financial and non-financial benefits. The financial benefits are largely based on reduced accommodation costs. The Programme are also confident that it can enable a wide range of non-financial benefits, including increased use of flexible working patterns, more effective management of peaks, improved IT delivery and people benefits including improved recruitment and staff retention.
