Large Business is responsible for HMRC's compliance work with the largest and most complex business customers, businesses which account for some 40% of HMRC's annual revenues.

Our strategy is applied to the UK's 2,000 most complex businesses, which have each been allocated a Customer Compliance Manager (CCM) reflecting our resource intensive, cooperative compliance approach. Using this approach we subject these businesses to an exceptional level of scrutiny and are actively investigating more than half of them at any one time.
This is an exciting and challenging time to be part of Large Business. The taxation of multinationals remains the focus of keen media and Parliamentary interest. We are in the process of implementing a package of measures to increase large business tax compliance and transparency, including the legislative changes flowing from the OECD-led base erosion and profit shifting agenda. In addition we have recently implemented our new enhanced approach to risk assessment.

Large Business is fully engaged with HMRC's transformation programmes which will provide opportunities to build our compliance capabilities. You will play a key role in influencing and implementing these changes. Large Business is currently organised into six regions and two specialist teams, each headed by an SCS PB1 Deputy Director who with the Director of Large Business form the Large Business Leadership Team (LBLT).
