We Asked

Consultation on a collection by the Department of Health on behalf of Her Majestys Treasury on the implementation in the NHS of their Review of the tax arrangements of senior public sector appointments. The H&SCIC facilitated a survey of the NHS last year to inform this Review. We need to ask the following questions: How many off-payroll engagements for those earning more than £220 per day for longer than 6 months since 23 August 2012? Of those, how many were: (a) Chief Executives (b) Executive directors (c) Chairs (d) Non-executive directors? How many for whom assurance as to their tax obligations has been sought? How many have successfully provided assurance? What action has been taken against those who have not provided assurance: Please provide numbers where: (a) contract has been terminated (b) contract has not been renewed (c) referred to HMRC

You Said

There were no concerns raised about this collection. One response indicated that the time it will actually take NHS Trusts to complete this one off data return will be less than estimated time burden provided by the collection owner.

We Did

As no concerns were raised we approved the collection with no changes.
