HMRC take care to ensure the accuracy of their payments to all their customers. Managers also make sure standards are set before an activity takes place and then conduct checks afterwards to ensure payments processes are properly designed and operating as intended.

Finally, independent assurance over HMRC’s processes including payments is obtained from Internal Audit, the Audit & Risk Committee and the National Audit Office as part of the third line of defence.
