Why am I amused? Because every single one of those changes has got its direct or indirect (in the case of the diverted profits tax) origin in the tax justice movement. Candidly, you can find them all in here, from 2005.
To put it another way, the initiatives that are helping close the tax gap all started in civil society and not in HMRC.
So let me ask the obvious question, which is why isn’t civil society represented on HMRC’s Board?
Because if the changes happen without such representation then such representation isn’t needed, is it?
How much are HMRC board members paid?
