HM Revenue and Customs has awarded a £13,000 contract for professional voiceover services for its YouTube channel.

Earlier this year the tax agency issued a contract notice seeing “hire of studio recording facilities and voiceover artist to record voiceovers for HMRC YouTube films”.

The department has now awarded the deal to music production and sound design company Street Furniture. The contract, which came into effect on 6 November and runs until 31 March 2020, will be worth £13,000 to the central London-based firm.
