Details

The government established a Fraud, Error and Debt Taskforce in 2010. This was to coordinate cross-government efforts to reduce the unacceptable losses to the taxpayer caused by fraud, error and non-payment of debt.

This report highlights the progress that has been made in the last 5 years and the measures that have been put in place to secure further improvements in the future.
