The Government does not hold data specifically on the annual cost of section 187 of the Taxation of Chargeable Gains Act 1992. Information on the use of section 187 is reported to HMRC in tax returns, but the relevant data is not held in a centralised form, and the cost of gathering for statistical purposes is disproportionate.
