Written answers (Question to Finance)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 225 and 227 together.

I am advised by Revenue that the number of vehicles seized for Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT) related offences and the number of cases where a compromise penalty was paid for each of the years 2015 to 2021 is set out in Table 1 below. A breakdown of compromise penalties refunded by number and by value is not available as information is not recorded on Revenue systems in this manner.

Table 2 below sets out the information requested by the Deputy in respect of VRT related compliance activity in January and February 2022
