HMRC plans to share taxpayers’ data criticised
Perhaps not unsurprisingly, HMRC’s plans to remove legal restrictions and enable it to share general and aggregate information have met with strong criticism. As well as releasing specific data sets, HMRC is looking to release (anonymised) information for research and analysis purposes and to share information to improve the delivery of public services.
HMRC accept that they will need to set in place comprehensive governance, policies and processes, before any data is shared or published and further are ‘committed to the core principle of taxpayer confidentiality’.
