Accountancy Age has reported that HMRC:
is to roll out funding to Phd students and other research experts as part of a new plan to encourage academics to contribute to tax decision-making and strategy formulation.
Researchers will now be able to pitch their research proposals to HM Revenue & Customs and then bid for financial backing.
'This process will allow a wider network of experts to influence the development of HMRC's evidence base‚Ä¶ generally the analytical focus is generated within HMRC based on departmental business objectives and evidence needs. We are now inviting an external audience to initiate research ideas,' HMRC said in a statement.
Maybe I should apply for funding to improve the data available on domicile. 🙂
