A spokeswoman for HMRC said: “HMRC is transforming to ensure that we continue to deliver the best possible service to our customers. In common with all customer service organisations we have to match staffing to the growth in online and digital services. We remain committed to avoiding redundancies wherever possible.

“We are also determined to improve our service delivery. Assessing the performance of staff through a fair and reasonable performance appraisal system is a key part of this.”
