About Us

The Association of Revenue and Customs (ARC) is both an independent trade union and the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) section of the FDA, the trade union for managers and professionals in public service.


ARC represents 2,900 members in HMRC, at HO and above, as well as trainees in grade 7 entry schemes. Its members include senior officials, lawyers and tax professionals, collectively taking responsibility for the collection of UK taxes, and tackling tax evasion and avoidance, at the highest and most complex level.

ARC is firmly committed to the principles of equality and diversity in both employment and the delivery of services.
