star this property answer text <p>HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has been discussing a vision of its future to 2020 and beyond with its workforce, through a consultation process called Building our Future. Through this, HMRC has outlined how it proposes to transform services to its customers and set out what this means for the future size, shape and location of the Department.<br><br>All HMRC staff members in every office have been invited to participate in Building our Future events, and around 80 per cent of staff have attended around 1,300 events across the UK in the two phases held so far.<br><br>HMRC also shared the main elements of this vision with MPs and Assembly Members in October 14. HMRC will continue to keep MPs and Assembly Members informed of the outcomes of these conversations.<br><br>HMRC has set out its early thinking about the principles that will determine its future location strategy, which involves bringing teams closer together in a smaller number of large, modern, adaptable Regional Centres. These centres will be supported by a UK-wide network of smaller specialist and touchdown sites. <br><br>HMRC has told staff that it believes that Cardiff is the most suitable location for a future Regional Centre in Wales, since it is already the biggest HMRC location in the country. However, no firm decisions have yet been made on the precise location or timing of a new HMRC Regional Centre in Cardiff or the nature and timing of impacts on other HMRC locations in Wales. <br><br>HMRC will be developing its plans over coming months and will share details of them as they emerge. HMRC will naturally undertake all necessary consultations and impact assessments.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The yield from the measure referred to (income tax: salary sacrifice and expenses including umbrella companies) relates to the introduction of a new exemption for qualifying expenses which cannot be used in conjunction with salary sacrifice. This follows a recommendation from the Office of Tax Simplification and a consultation undertaken by HMRC over the summer. Draft legislation for this measure was published on 10<sup>th</sup> December. The decision to prevent the exemption from being used alongside salary sacrifice schemes will prevent tax loss from employers (including umbrella companies).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government will shortly be publishing a discussion document specifically reviewing the use of overarching contracts used by umbrella companies and is separate from the measure referred to above.</p> more like this
