Nick Davies (deputy chair of the End-User Needs Working Group) is a tax inspector and policy advisor in HMRC by trade and negotiated the legislation and implementation of the BACs leg of the PAYE in Real Time system.

Since then he has been on secondment to DWP- the largest user of direct credit in the UK- where he advises ministers on payment strategy. Nick is working to brigade the government-as -customer requirement of the payments industry and align that with the PSR’s statutory remit both to improve administration and delivery and to benefit corporate and individual taxpayers, welfare claimants and pensioners, bringing the prospect of safe, secure real time digital government closer.
