Revenue and Customs: Compensation


To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much compensation was paid to companies and individuals following investigations against them by HM Revenue and Customs and by each of its predecessors in each of the last 10 tax years.

Mr. Djanogly: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much compensation was paid to (a) companies and (b) individuals following investigations against them by HM Revenue and Customs and by each of its predecessors, the Inland Revenue and HM Customs and Excise, in each of the last 10 tax years. [160479]

Jane Kennedy: HMRC makes redress payments for mistakes and unreasonable delays, as did its predecessors. The total sums for the last three years are published in HMRC annual reports. In previous years these payments were not specified in the annual reports of either of the predecessor departments. It is not possible for any of the years in question for HMRC to distinguish whether any payment was made in consequence of an investigation.
