Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have been involved in 42 cases where people have been surrendered to the UK for tax offences since 2008/09 on a European Arrest Warrant.

2008/2009 - 6
2009/2010 -12
2010/2011 - 5
2011/2012 - 5
2012/2013 - 7
2013/2014 - 3
2014/2015 - 4

These figures do not represent all cases involving tax offences, as other EAWs which may include tax offences were not dealt with by HMRC and are not recorded separately.
