Mr. Niall Cody:

We will have regard to whatever information comes to us. We deal with this regularly in compliance across all areas. We encourage businesses to review. Generally it will be submissions from accountants and lawyers. We will examine and sample those. We are not dependent on those. We can do our own but we can also generally in a self-assessment system engage with the taxpayer. If their advisers come up with an submission, we will quality check and audit it and assure ourselves it is adequate.
