The data requested by the Deputy are listed in the table. It is important to take into account that the figures displayed for 2011 and 2012 in the table below are based on end-year outturns and are on a Revenue Net Receipt basis. These can differ slightly from Exchequer Receipts for reasons of accounting and timing. The estimate for 2013 USC receipts is provisional pending the outcome of the end year collection figures but is consistent with the income tax estimates contained in Budget 2014.
