Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50208593
  • Date: 13 July 2009
  • Public Authority: Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs
  • Summary: The complainant requested information from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) about investigations concerning a particular company. HMRC refused to confirm or deny if the requested information was held by virtue of section 44 of the Act ‘prohibitions on disclosure’. The Commissioner has investigated and found that the requested information, if held, would be exempt by virtue of section 44(1)(a) of the Act. Furthermore, HMRC was correct to rely on section 44(2) to neither confirm nor deny if the requested information is held. This decision notice is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.
