DEC

We're waiting for ken frost to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

Please can you provide me with the following information wrt DEC:

1) What is Digital Evidence Capability in the context of Counter-Avoidance and can you verify it's existence?
2) How much has it cost the taxpayer to date and when did development of the system begin?
3) Is it being actively used within Counter Avoidance for tracking avoidance cases and if so, how many cases are currently on the system?
4) Has the system generated any avoidance cases that have been pursued?
5) is Mark Nellthorp responsible for managing the development of the system?

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Ken Frost

Thank you for your communication of 7 October 2016 which has been passed to HMRC’s Freedom of Information Team.

We have allocated the above reference which you should quote if you need to contact us.

The Team will arrange for a reply to be sent to you which will either comply with HMRC’s obligations under Freedom of Information Act or, if we think it’s an enquiry that we don’t need to address under the terms of the Act, let you know why. If it is the latter we will, if possible, pass it on to a more appropriate part of the Department for answer.
