Hidden Economy

The scope, scale and extent of the hidden (or black) economy is causing serious problems for small & medium sized enterprises because it diverts consumer spending away from legitimate businesses. This leakage to the hidden economy is currently estimated to be as high as 14% GDP o half a billion euro each month.

To combat the hidden economy, the Revenue Commissioners have designed a form which allows people to report such activity.  We encourage you to use this form to inform the Revenue Commissioners of any illegitimate business activity.  The matter will then be pursued by the Revenue and all information provided is dealt with in strict confidence.
