HMRC considers further data for publication

printer Mail

The CIOT is seeking input from its members on four questions put by HMRC to help identify further sets of compliance data that could be published to help improve trust and transparency in relation to HMRC’s powers and safeguards.

The four questions are:

  • Do you know where HMRC publishes information and how to access it?
  • Do you think if HMRC published further data it would improve your understanding of how HMRC uses its powers and the operation of taxpayer safeguards?
  • What information do you think it most important for HMRC to publish to improve trust and transparency?
  • Why do you think this would help improve trust and transparency?

The CIOT asks for responses by 27 March to, using the subject heading ‘Data and Transparency’.

In September, HMRC expanded its range of published performance and management information to include 14 new metrics around debt management, customs and customer experience. This was followed in November by quarterly experimental compliance data including the number of closed civil and criminal compliance checks, total prosecutions and criminal sentences as well as the outcomes of court decisions.
