In September 2018, the Government granted approval in principle for the phased recruitment of an additional 600 Revenue staff to meet the challenges posed by Brexit.
Following a Government decision in December 2018, Revenue’s recruitment programme was accelerated in preparation for a potential no-deal Brexit. I am advised by Revenue that by 31 October 2019 recruitment had been advanced to a level whereby 586 staff had been appointed to Brexit-related roles.
