Consultation description

This consultation proposes ‘conditionality’ measures to tackle the hidden economy.

This would make compliance with certain tax obligations a condition of holding some licences, and introduce checks on applicants’ tax-registration status as part of licensing processes.

The consultation suggests licensing regimes which could be suitable for changes to introduce conditionality. It seeks feedback on their suitability for the proposed changes, and outlines ways that tax-registration checks could be administered and enforced.
