Supplementary memorandum submitted by
the Inland Revenue
Question 188: The Committee asked for information
about the differential take-up of e-services across the regions?
The table below provides a summary by Region of:
the number of internet filers dealt
with by offices in the Region*
the number of internet filers living
within the Region.
|Region||Number of Internet filers dealt with by offices in the Region*
||Number of Internet filers living in the Region
*An office by office breakdown of returns filed by internet is
attached as at Annex A.
The figures for internet filers dealt with within a particular
Region are different to those for the internet filers that live
within that region. An individual's home, or indeed their place
of work, will not necessarily be located in the same Region as
the office that handles his or her tax affairs. For example, most
PAYE schemes for London businesses are handled in London Provincial
Districts, which are located outside London.
The totals for the number of internet filers in each column differ
slightly. This is because the two sets of figures are "snapshots"
taken at different times during the day on 31 January 2002 (the
last date for submitting tax returns for 2000-01).
