Revenue regrets overtime ban
The Inland Revenue has said its pay increase offer was 'fair and reasonable' and it regrets the overtime ban by its staff workers in the Public and Commercial Services union.
The remarks come after 60,000 Revenue staff refused to work overtime during the last minute rush before of the self-assessment deadline. There are still over two million self-assessment forms overdue.
A Revenue spokesman told AccountancyAge.com: ‘We regret the overtime ban currently operating and will continue to work with the PCS.
‘The pay offer was an average of 4.3%, which we believe is fair and reasonable
‘People will still be able to submit their self-assessment forms until January 31 ‘
