Officers of Revenue and Customs

Following the merger of the Inland Revenue and Customs & Excise we should be used to references to Officers of Revenue and Customs. I'm grateful to Mike Truman, Editor of Taxation magazine for pointing out that this means they are ORCs.

And I've realised that, as the combined HMRC need combined powers for the ORCs to exercise, when we talk about their powers, we could use the acronym: PORCS

This could lead to ORCs using their PORCs to identify when taxpayers have told Porkies.
