star this property answer text <p><strong>HMRC collects about £475 billion of tax revenue every year. 90% of this is collected by the due date; just 10% of it becomes overdue and a debt that HMRC has to recover/enforce.</strong></p><p> </p><p><strong>It would be misleading to attribute the effect of enforcing tax that is not paid on time outside the context of collecting tax that is collected on time.</strong></p><p> </p><p><strong>Accordingly, we do not routinely measure the ‘average' cost of collecting £1 of debt.</strong></p><p> </p><p><strong>HMRC uses a number of different methods to recover outstanding debts ranging from automated processes to more targeted enforcement tools as well as partnering initiatives with private sector companies. The application of specific interventions depends on a number of factors including customer behaviour, the economic climate, and our overall approach to maintaining the health of the tax system and tackling non-compliance.</strong></p><p> </p><p><strong>In 2011 HMRC published the results of an international benchmarking study which compares HMRC's operational performance to nine other international tax administrations. Results from this study showed HMRC had the lowest cost of all ten countries</strong>.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Over the long term 99% of taxes due are collected with only 1% being lost to the Exchequer, almost all of which is due to insolvency. </strong></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK is at the forefront of global efforts to tackle excessive pay in the financial sector and ensure that pay is aligned with performance; our tough Remuneration Code requires deferral of at least 60% of bonuses of senior bankers and limits the amounts that can be paid in cash. Bonuses are down significantly since their peak under the last Government, and are now largely deferred and paid in shares.</p><p> </p><p>In contrast, the EU's bonus cap is a poorly thought through measure that undermines rather than reinforces our efforts by pushing up fixed pay. It was introduced without any proper impact assessment and has serious issues around its compatibility with the EU Treaty, and for these reasons we are challenging it in the European Court of Justice. However, pending the outcome, the Government is fully implementing the cap in the UK.</p><p> </p><p>The Prudential Regulation Authority and Financial Conduct Authority have responsibility for ensuring that remuneration practices in the banking sector are compliant with the new rules.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>In March 2013, information was extracted from HMRC's tax credit system in respect of the number of families claiming tax credits where, if claiming as a couple, at least one of the family members was recorded as being a non-UK national when they registered for a National Insurance number.</p><p> </p><p>The extract shows that as at March 2013, 715,900 such families were claiming tax credits. If we assume no further changes until the end of the relevant year, the annual tax credits entitlement of these awards was £4.9 billion. The same extract showed that the total number of families claiming tax credits was 4,705,100 with an annual entitlement of £29.55 billion.</p><p> </p><p>For this purpose, as nationality was based on nationality at the time a claimant first registered for a National Insurance Number (NINO)the nationality of some of those claimants may have since changed. The information is not therefore sufficiently reliable to be used for formal statistical purposes.</p><p> </p><p>Based on this information the numbers of non-UK nationals claiming Tax Credits as a percentage of the entire Tax Credits population are broadly in line with the percentage of non-UK nationals in the UK workforce (according to figures in the 2013 Labour Force Survey complied by the ONS).</p><p> </p>
