I thank the witnesses for joining us and acknowledge Revenue's contribution in the delivery of crucial services, on behalf of the Government, during the pandemic.

I will start by focusing on compliance checks. The committee recognises the great work that has been undertaken by Revenue with 99.5% compliance checks in operation, as referenced in the opening statement. How many cases has Revenue investigated for the misuse of schemes implemented to support businesses and individuals during the pandemic?
