HM Revenues and Customs (HMRC) has become the first major government department to dump Microsoft in favour of Google.

The Register reported that 70,000 HMRC staff will adopt Google's cloud-based productivity apps over Microsoft's Office 365 offering, joining 20,000 government employees who already use Google's Gmail service.

HMRC has since confirmed the move in a statement. A spokesperson said: "HMRC has an ambitious digital future planned. This contract will make it easier for staff to collaborate on internal documents, providing greater flexibility and efficiency while reducing costs.
"Following a successful pilot, we are planning to roll out Google collaboration tools to more people throughout HMRC later this year. We have carefully considered the protection of customer information and this remains our highest priority."
