On 14/11/19 we had three visitors from HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs). They talked to us about taxes and why they're important.
We learnt that they take 20% of a person's money to share for society. The Chancellor of the Exchequer is called Sajid Javaid. He looks after all the money made from taxes (£500 billion). The tax year is 6th April - 5th April.
