GB: Developing Methodologies for Measuring Direct Tax Losses (2007)

HM Revenue and Customs report (27 pages, PDF) setting out a methodology to estimate direct tax losses. The report provides estimates for the UK of losses from non-payment and incorrect returns for individuals (for 1999/2000-2000/2001), small and medium-sized employers (for 2003/2004) and for small and medium-sized companies (for 2001-2003). The estimates are based on random enquiry programmes and on analysis of non-payments.
