2 LBPS: More for Less Presentation Overview Background and Introduction Overview of the Panel and Benefit of Approach Using the Information from the Panel Partnering with Academics Key Considerations More for Less - Recap

3 Why does HMRC research large businesses? HMRC has a strong focus on customer satisfaction and regularly researches all its customers Large businesses is a small but important customer group – there are approx 9,000 in the UK (>50m turnover or >250 employees) Large businesses have complex tax affairs and make a significant contribution to the UK economy Research provides in-depth understanding and evidence for policy-making so that we can increase compliance Regular survey to large businesses since 2008

4 Why a panel approach? How can we increase knowledge but minimise research burden? Commissioned feasibility study and consult with stakeholders In 2010 – a longitudinal study: Large Business Panel N=6000 Customer experience survey 20 min telephone survey Run in the autumn Funded by HMRC Tax Opinions survey 20 min telephone survey Run in spring Funded by HMRC & ESRC

5 What are the benefits? Building up in-depth picture over time One vehicle for all research Reducing time & costs Maximising data usage Reaching more stakeholders Increasing Flexibility

6 Using the information from the panel: HMRCs customer centric strategy Stabilise and improve the customer experience Create sustainable cost reductions Maximise revenue flows

7 Using the information from the panel: Stabilise and improve the customer experience About 2,000 of the largest businesses now have a CRM Key to businesses experience of HMRC, named contact with knowledge about the business CRMs capacity to handle queries is key to satisfaction: Ensuring that your queries are dealt with effectively Respond within agreed timelines Willingness to help The survey has followed the take up and experience of CRMs since 2008 Survey feedback indicated that other businesses would like to see a single point of contact too, so in 2010 the Customer Co-ordinator was introduced

8 Using the information from the panel: Create sustainable cost reductions Majority of businesses have experience of real time working The approach appears to have an effect on certainty and speed of resolution Subsequent surveys explore potential impacts on businesses as well as whether businesses can be encouraged to use real time more

9 Using the information from the panel: Maximise revenue flows The surveys look at risk from a variety of perspectives: Assess changes made in HMRC to accommodate the new approach Seek businesses opinion on the risk review process Look at the potential impact on businesses internal structures
