Self-employed Taxpayers

Volume 456: debated on Tuesday 6 February 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to his answer of 31 January 2007, Official Report, columns 344-45W, on self-employed taxpayers, what proportion of self-employed taxpayers' tax returns for 2004-05 in (a) the south east and (b) the UK were investigated. (119411)

Inquiries into the 2004-05 tax returns of self-employed taxpayers would have commenced during the 2005-06 tax year. Details of the national targets and achievements are contained in the HM Revenue and Customs Annual Report for 2005-06.

Separate figures for the south east are not kept and it would be disproportionately expensive to recover them.
