The National Audit Office – University of Birmingham Tax Centre was launched in January 2018 to deliver independent evidence to improve tax efficiency on issues such as:

  • Behavioural economics insights into tax administration
  • Assessing the tax gap
  • The impact of making tax digital
  • Tax evasion and avoidance
  • Customer service
  • Transformation of the tax system

The Tax Centre makes research readily accessible and it encourages debate, exchanges knowledge and stimulates ideas through events and networks. This includes enabling government bodies, academics and tax practitioners to discuss needs and practical challenges in a safe place, as was illustrated in this recent NAO Blog-post: Can better service bring in more tax revenue? How the NAO is helping government investigate.

Please visit the NAO – University of Birmingham Tax Centre website for links to all research and further information about the Tax Centre, its governance and the roles of the partners.

NAO studies on tax can also be found on our Tax and duties page.
