I am advised by Revenue that the following table ##sets out the compliance measures introduced since Budget 2012. The table includes the projected yields and the actual yields achieved. Links to various relevant analysis and reviews published by Revenue are also included for the Deputy’s information.

The total yields are determined using a conservative approach as other actions and interventions by Revenue may have stimulated partial uplift.
