About us

An informal network for tax professionals who work at HM Revenue and Customs.

The Government Tax profession is one of the Civil Service Professions. The Tax Academy promotes tax professionalism in Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) on behalf of its tax professionals.

A tax professional’s job role requires an in-depth understanding, awareness or application of one or multiple areas of tax policy or law.

HMRC needs a highly trained cadre of tax professionals to realise its strategic objectives. The training programmes equip successful learners with the skills and knowledge to perform effectively in a variety of tax professional roles.
