Tax Evasion

Volume 458: debated on Wednesday 14 March 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his latest estimate is of the differences between the tax and duties which should have been paid and those which were paid in 2005-06. (126236)

There are no reliable estimates for the difference between the total tax and duties that should have been paid and the amount actually paid in 2005-06.

However, estimates of revenue losses in indirect taxes are available and are reported in “Measuring Indirect Tax Losses—2006”, which is published alongside the PBR and can be found in the House of Commons Library.
