Protected Disclosure in the TAC

Published: 24 July 2020

From: Tax Appeals Commission

The Tax Appeals Commission has procedures in place for protected disclosures that have been developed in line with the Protected Disclosures Act 2014 , and agreed upon by the Chairperson and senior management. 

These procedures detail:

  • how staff members can make a disclosure 
  • what happens when disclosures are made
  • what the TAC does to protect the staff members 

The Tax Appeals Commission has a strong commitment to ensuring its culture and working environment encourages, facilitates and supports employees. This particularly refers to anyone who might wish to 'speak up' on an issue that impinges on the TAC’s ability to carry out its responsibilities.

There were no protected disclosures received between the years 2016 to 2019 inclusive.
