HMRC Charter committee looks for independent members

HMRC Charter committee looks for independent members

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) are looking for independent members to give an oversight of tax authority by joining the new Charter committee.

The body will be a subcommittee of HMRC's board charged with overseeing how the tax authority adheres to its Charter commitments, which set out taxpayers’ rights in the UK economy. The move is aimed at strengthening governance.

Four recruits

The committee wants four people to join the membership of HMRC executives, non-executives, and a range of external stakeholders from across the spectrum of HMRC’s customer groups.

The new subcommittee will be chaired by Edwina Dunn, the non-executive HMRC board member and Charter champion.

New role

The new members will represent HMRC’s broad customer groups, offering constructive advice and challenging the board to fulfil the Charter commitments where needed.

These commitments revolve around issues such as making sure taxpayers are treated with respect, the use of representatives, data protection, and cutting administrative costs.

The new recruits will not be paid, but will have expenses reimbursed for travel and other outlays needed to carry out their duties.
