Taxman to fund Phd research

Taxman to fund Phd students and other research experts to encourage them to contribute to tax decision-making and strategy formulation

The taxman is
to roll out funding to Phd students and other research experts as part of a new
plan to encourage academics to contribute to tax decision-making and strategy
formulation.

Researchers will now be able to pitch their research proposals to HM Revenue
& Customs and then bid for financial backing.

HMRC will pay
out its first round of funding in April next year.

‘This process will allow a wider network of experts to influence the
development of HMRC’s evidence base… generally the analytical focus is generated
within HMRC based on departmental business objectives and evidence needs.

‘We are now inviting an external audience to initiate research ideas,’ HMRC
said in a statement.

There is currently no budget set for the project.

HMRC officials will review all proposals and assess whether a business case
should be made to bid for funds.
