Jobs around the country are believed to be affected.

Inland Revenue staff have been given details of how the organisation will move to cut 1500 of its jobs.

It has previously signalled that staff numbers will be cut by about 30 per cent between 2018 and 2021.

Staff received a document at 3pm on Tuesday and were called into hour-long meetings around the country to discuss the proposed plan.

Inland Revenue said a consultation plan was presented on the first phase of the "organisational redesign".

Sources said most of the job cuts discussed on Tuesday related to team leader and more senior roles. But most jobs are believed to be changing in some way.

New roles would take effect from January 1.

Staff were told that the organisation wanted people to have broader skill ranges.

A union meeting will be held on Wednesday to discuss the changes, which are still a proposal at this stage.
