HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) operate a performance management scheme, as HMRC believe that there should be a direct link between performance and your salary.
There is currently a two-year pay freeze which applies to HMRC staff for grades below Senior Civil Service (SCS) in 2011-12 and 2012-13. This affects everyone earning more than the full-time equivalent of £21,000 a year. Those earning below £21,000 who get a 'good' or 'top' performance marking will get a pay rise.
Jobs are split into grades and each of these has a different salary scale as shown below. London salaries are higher than those for the rest of the country. Subject to the restrictions of the two-year pay freeze your movement up the salary scale each year depends on your performance in the job.
|Grade||National Minimum*||National Maximum*||London Minimum*||London Maximum*|
|Training grade (graduate development programme)||27,045||39,946||29,256||43,192|
