Responses to greater Revenue powers revealed

The Inland Revenue has published an online summary of responses to its proposals in its Powers To Combat Serious Tax Fraud technical note.

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.
