Written answers (Question to Finance)

I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that data are not maintained in a manner which would enable this question to be readily replied to. However I can provide statistics for Revenue’s Large Cases Division which manages the tax affairs of the largest companies and high wealth individuals within the state including those with turnover in excess of €500M.

Since 2005 Large Cases Division has completed 3,447 audits on cases for whom it is responsible. In addition, since July 2011, this Division has also completed 7,397 other risk interventions (such as querying refunds, relief claims) on cases for which it is responsible.
