Responses to greater Revenue powers revealed

The move follows a technical note published in November last year which proposed a new power to enable tax investigators, in cases where they have reasonable grounds for suspecting serious tax fraud, to apply for a judicial order requiring people to supply them with relevant documents.

It also suggested an alteration to the existing search power, which would enable those carrying out a search to obtain print-outs of material held on a computer.

A summarised outcome of the proposal is now available to download in both Adobe Acrobat PDF format or as a Microsoft Word Document.
