Black Economy Advisory Board

The Black Economy Taskforce final report recommended that an Advisory Board be established that includes members of the private and public sector to provide strategic advice on emerging trends, risks and factors contributing to changes in the black economy. Private sector members bring together a wide range of backgrounds including small business, tax expertise, and industry experience.

The Board will advise the Treasury about the implementation of the Government's decisions attacking the black economy and contribute to a Government report in five years about the new threats emerging in the black economy.

On 13 September 2018, the newly announced Black Economy Advisory Board met for the first time. The Black Economy Advisory Board members are:
