Internal Audit

Who we are

Internal Audit deals with issues that are fundamental to the reputation and success of the department. Although we’re part of HMRC, we’re independent of the activities we audit. We provide internal audit services across HMRC and the Valuation Office Agency.

What we do

Our role is to provide independent and objective assurance to the Chief Executive to ensure that the department’s risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively and efficiently. 

“All of our auditors take pride in their work and strive to deliver a high-quality performance. In return you’ll be given a range of personal development opportunities to continue building your professional career.”
