Chairman David Varney introduces HMRC
David Varney, chairman of HM Revenue and Customs, wrote to "external stakeholders" ahead of this week's launch of the new department formed by the merger of Inland Revenue and HM Customs and Excise.
Varney's letter of 8 April is reproduced below. It also features in HMRC's latest bulletin for PAYE software developers, published by HMRC on 19 April.
The ICAEW's Tax Faculty observed last weekend that there is "little coming out of the Revenue" now that the election has been announced.
