star this property answer text <p>UK Export Finance can provide support for intangibles, such as software licenses, where they are provided in connection with goods or services. As far as the supply of intangibles by themselves are concerned, UK Export Finance has initiated a public consultation on proposals to widen its powers under its enabling legislation, the Export and Investment Guarantees Act 1991 (as amended). These proposals include giving UK Export Finance the ability to support exports of intangible goods such as intellectual property rights by themselves. If, having regard to the responses to that consultation, it is deemed to implement these proposals, they will form part of a Bill that will be introduced in the next session of Parliament.</p> more like this

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>
