HMRC passes on all receipts from student loan collection to the Department for Education and Skills on a quarterly basis.
HM Revenue and Customs will only know the total number of borrowers who have had repayments deducted by their employer when they have finished processing all 1.6 million employers' annual returns for the financial year 2004-05.
However, we currently estimate that 1.9 per cent. of 2004-05 student loan repayments have not yet been passed on to the Student Loans Company.
