Tax Avoidance

Volume 485: debated on Thursday 18 December 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what recent representations HM Revenue and Customs has received on the resources required to combat tax avoidance by major corporations. (244648)

The Department receives representations on a wide range of subjects.

As recommended by the Varney Review of Links with Large Business published in November 2006, the Department takes a risk-based approach to its largest customers, focusing resources on issues and businesses which are judged to be of higher risk.

The Department continues to monitor its assessments to ensure that sufficient resources are focused on the most important and difficult risks.
