VFMR Tracker 2015 – 2017

Expenditure programmes are subject to review under the established system of Value for Money and Policy Reviews (VFMs).  Departments subject major blocks of expenditure to rigorous evaluation over a 3-year cycle.  By systematically analysing the performance of programmes, these reviews provide evidence to support more informed decisions about priorities between and within expenditure programmes. The government agreed a new program of Value for Money Reviews on the 14th of July 2015 and that round was to cover expenditure between 2015 – 2017.

Following it’s completion, the published work from the 2015 – 2017 cycle, can be found here.

The complete VFMR Tracker for the 2015 – 2017 cycle can be found here.

Corporation Tax 2017 Payments and 2016 Returns

The purpose of this paper is to profile Corporation Tax (“CT”) payments in 2017 and report on trends compared to previous years. While payments were received in 2017, tax returns (the “CT1” return) in respect of accounting periods ended in 2017 are not due until a later date. However, analysis of returns for 2016 (the most recent year for which returns have been filed at present) provides context for the payments.
