HMRC hires Granger for enforcement and compliance role
A veteran of the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is to take the role of director-general for enforcement and compliance at HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) in the UK.
Jennie Granger, who is expected to begin her role in October, is the ATO’s second commissioner for law. She was the second commissioner, compliance from 2002 to 2009, leading the development of the Office’s Compliance Program and the Compliance sub-plan. In early 2010, she spent six months on secondment as deputy secretary to the prime minister and cabinet. When she rejoined the ATO she took on the role she has now.
The new member of HMRC’s executive committee will succeed Mike Eland in a role that takes in areas such as local compliance, criminal investigation, specialist investigations and risk & intelligence. She is on the IMF Panel of Tax Administration Experts. In 2009 she was awarded an Australian Public Service Medal for 'outstanding public service in administration of taxation in Australia and internationally', for her role in bringing greater openness and transparency to ATO compliance activities.
