HMRC To Open Scottish HQ Hub in 2020

There has long been calls for a HMRC HQ in Scotland. Well, good news, because they are on track to open a hub by 2020.

The new high tech hub will have the opening ceremony in the spring time and is expected to be the main base for all Scottish HMRC staff.

Which city is this HQ Hub going to be in? Inverness, Glasgow, Fife, Dundee…The Highlands, maybe?

No, no, no, no…and no.

The location is going to be…

[drum roll please]


Ah yes, Edinburgh. A city well known for castle’s, kilts, and…contractors, of course.

It is right there in the fair city of Edinburgh where thousands of Scottish contractors ply their trade and pay their taxes. So it makes sense to have the HMRC base themselves right there, in the centre of the action.

If you are a Scottish contractor reading this, then you might be wondering about Edinburgh contractor accountants? Where can you find a decent one?

In our opinion, the best option is look at our recommended contractor accountants, right now at the right hand side of the page.

Sure, you could pound the streets of Edinburgh and look for an accountant on the high street, but how many of them specialise in working with contractors? Not many, you can be assured of that.

You will mostly find general accountants in the city of Edinburgh, and while they are good when you have a general kind of business…when you have a specific kind of business, such as being a contractor, then you need an expert in that field.

As the old saying goes: you wouldn’t hire a dentist to fix your John, and just like you wouldn’t hire a plumber to mend your choppers, if you see what we mean.

If you do see what we mean and we are both on the same wave length then you are in the right place here at Contractor Accountants.

Just like the Scottish HMRC staff are going to be in the right place (Edinburgh) and at the right time (2020).

It is expected there will be around 2600 staff working at the new HMRC HQ and the building is going to cost a cool £240 million.

So let’s all raise our glasses to the Scottish HMRC, Scottish contractors, and Scottish contractor accountants. I’m sure it is going to be the start of a fresh new era for contractors North of The Border, and even South of The Border. No matter which side of the border this is good news all round.
