HMRC job cuts and office closures on the cards. By Dan Martin
Thousands of HMRC staff could lose their jobs as a result of new cost-cutting measures announced by the government department.
As part of plans to drive up efficiency and improve the service offered to businesses and individuals, several offices are also set to be closed as the Revenue attempts to save £30m by April 2008.
In a statement released on Thursday, HMRC said consultations on the "future shape and direction" of the department will begin next month.
"The department now has more buildings than it needs," it added.
