Working Together Nationally
The National Working Together Steering Group includes representatives from HMRC and the professional bodies for tax practitioners. Representatives are:
- the team leader from the National Working Together team;

The Steering Group has quarterly meetings which provides the opportunity for a free exchange of views on operational matters that are important both to practitioners and HMRC.
The key aims of the Working Together Steering Group are to:
- provide leadership and a clear focus for Working Together;
- focus on issues where our procedures and our services affect tax advisers and their clients;
- deal with new issues of national importance as and when they arise;
- agree the key priorities;
- check on the progress being made on the key priorities;
- receive information on reviews or projects that different parts of HMRC carry out; and
- make sure that agents' views are passed to consultation groups.
The ATT Steering Group Representative is Jean Jesty.
