    I don't know for sure how it works this year - I'm only going off what someone told me who was on last years reserve list (and was offered a place not on his preference sheet).
    Out of curiosity, how long did he have to wait before he was told there's a place available?

    What is going on here?
    Too many arguements.
    Lets not see the bad picture now.If you believe in hard work and yourself( most hardworking degree holders would!), you will be the future of HMRC and G7's.
    Did anyone get reply regarding ICAS pilot?
    Which one leads to G7 faster( business ready)

    I've sent them an e-mail. Still waiting for a reply though. This ICAS thing has thrown a curveball to this whole process.

    I didn't ask - didn't want to give myself false hope! Haha. He said he was offered a place and he said he would think about it but if a place came up in a different location let him know, and the next day he had a phone call offering a location closer to his home, he said he would take it but would prefer Leeds and on the phone they said they actually had a place going in Leeds too so he took that. Only going from what he said, don't know if it will work differently this year.

    Wow. Since I've been asked for the source of my information a few times now, the figures I quoted were my recollection of the 2015/16 Pay Award figures published on HMRC's own intranet. Having checked them again this morning (I have it open in front of me currently), I can confirm that the published minimum for trainees is 25,000 (27,000 London), midpoint 32,473 (35,096) and G7 minimum 47,903 (53,915).
    I apologise if that information is incorrect but I am not responsible for that. If it is correct then it must be the case that TSP trainees are appointed above the minimum (there are several different types of trainee). I apologise for any confusion. I've had no reason to check the pay range on the advert since I know exactly what I will be paid. Please don't let this escalate into another hypothetical discussion about whether or not the job advert is wrong. Rest assured you'll be paid exactly what it said in the advert.

    I'm bowing out now, as requested.
    Just to clarify the £25000 is referring to the civil service Fast Stream, and not the TSP. Don't forget Band T covers the Fast Stream as well as TSP.

    Also just wanted to say my previous comment may have been a bit harsh, so apologies for that. I may have got carried away a little.

    Anyone have any idea whether they're still processing DBS checks and references?

    I work in a school, and a DBS check we submitted last week came back within days, so I can't imagine ours will have taken very long unless they weren't submitted until recently. My boss says no reference requests have been made but, from what I understand, HMRC don't always call for them anyway.

    This MIGHT mean that they're waiting until the 12th deadline before they issue formal offers.

    I don't think they will start dbs until after the offer acceptance deadline.even after that, sometimes dbs gets misplaced( happened to me personally) and had to apply to see it online( £13 service). It was less than 4 weeks when i finally received an offer. So don't raise your hopes high. There is plenty of time left, to give notice and receive confirmed offer!

    For those of you who have accepted your offers, did you get any kind of confirmation? I'm worried that it hasn't been received.

    Sigh. I only have until the end of this month to submit my resignation, so was kinda hoping for sown thing formal sooner.

    As to confirmation of receipt for accepting offers, I haven't got anything back either. Seems people on the Facebook group also haven't.

    When I sent my acceptance email I asked for them to confirm they had received it, but I have had no response yet. They are probably working their way through all the emails. I have checked the email address 3 times and my sent box numerous times as well, but until I receive a reply I won't stop feeling worried. If it was the wrong email address, surely the email would have bounced back.

    Does anyone know how much work you'd need to do outside of the allocated study days? Either on a regular basis or right before exams? I'm trying to work out how much would need to be done in my 'own' time.

    Also, how does annual leave work? I got the impression it had to be taken at certain times of the year- is that correct?

    I don't work at HMRC and I am basing my information on what I've read else where so don't take my word on this! I suppose it depends on each person individually, I've often heard people refer to the study leave as generous so I assume you won't need to do too much in your own time as long as you use your study days wisely! Before an exam I would imagine you would be doing more work as I don't know many people who don't cram revision in the week before an exam (but I'm relating this to university experience)! I've heard of people who 'bank' up some of their study days to allow them to have the week/few days off before an exam, but I'm not really sure of specifics. Perhaps if you post on last years thread you might be able to get a better idea of the workload from someone who has experienced it first hand.

    As for the holidays someone asked this on the facebook group. The reply was 'The TSP16 timetable has not yet been finalised, but the dates where you can take longer periods of leave without missing a tutorial tend to be at the same time as school holidays.'

    When did you send off your acceptance, and when did your confirmation arrive? I'm trying to work out a rough timeline.
