star this property answer text <p>The information requested is not available. However, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) does produce estimates of the effect of the hidden economy on tax revenues. In its latest publication, HMRC estimates the hidden economy tax gap at £3.5 billion in 2015-16. This estimate can be found in the summary of the ‘Measuring tax gaps’ publication, available at <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/measuring-tax-gaps" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/statistics/measuring-tax-gaps</a>.</p><p> </p><p>HMRC also commissioned NatCen Social Research to undertake a quantitative survey to better understand the nature and number of people involved in the hidden economy, as well as their characteristics.
