The estimated proportion of small- and medium-sized enterprise employers failing to fully meet their obligations in respect of operating Pay As You Earn (PAYE) is published in ‘Measuring Tax Gaps; 2015 edition' (table 6.8, p.53).

Comparable figures for large employers are not available, but an estimate of the tax gap for large employers can be found on table 6.9, also on p.53.
