Finance and Performance, Planning & Risk

Read how our financial services are vital to the everyday running of HMRC.

Finance Profession

To best support HMRC, our finance function is positioned at the heart of its decision making and is organised to provide the financial services and insight that HMRC needs to deliver its responsibilities.

What the work entails

Our financial services are vital not only to the everyday running of HMRC, but to building a trusted, modern tax and customs department for the future.

We work collaboratively together across our diverse finance teams and with colleagues across the organisation to meet our objectives.

We help to build a safer HMRC by setting robust and effective systems and processes that protect the department and all who depend on it, whilst being easy to comply with.

We contribute to the smoother running of HMRC by providing the services that the rest of the organisation depend on as seamlessly as possible.

To enable us to do this we are supporting and building a professional, empowered, and inclusive finance function. Working with people right across HMRC, to be our best not only today, but over the coming years.
