star this property answer text <p>The Immigration Health Surcharge was introduced in April 2015. Information on income collected from Immigration Health Surcharge payments since then is reported annually in the Home Office Annual Report and Accounts.</p><p>Information on income collected for the 2015/16 financial year can be found on pages 134 &amp; 135 of the following report:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/539638/HO_AR_16_gov.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/539638/HO_AR_16_gov.pdf</a></p><p>Information on income collected for the 2016/17 financial year can be found on page 117 of the following report:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/627853/ho_annual_report_and_accounts_2016_2017.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/627853/ho_annual_report_and_accounts_2016_2017.pdf</a></p><p>Information on income collected for the 2017/18 financial year will be made available in the 2017/18 Home Office Statement of Accounts which is due to be laid in the House on 12 July 2018.</p><p>In relation to the estimated revenue for the current year, by precedent, the Home Office does not release current year data until the accounts are closed and the figures audited by the National Audit Office. The NAO’s role is to inspect and agree the accounts: were we to release any estimates/figures now, we may later find that the auditors will ask us to amend/change the figures, rendering any early releases of data incorrect. Consequently, we may need to re-issue the answer to the PQ, because parliament would have been misled. Information on income collected for the current financial year will be made available in the 2018/19 Home office Statement of Accounts.</p>
