The Inland Revenue commissioned BMRB Social Research and Policy Studies Institute (PSI) to conduct a survey among employers, to quantify the impact that Working Families' Tax Credit (hereafter described as WFTC) and Disabled Person's Tax Credit (hereafter described as DPTC) had on the population of employers. The survey focused particularly on the experiences of employers in paying tax credits through the payroll (generally referred to as Payment via the Employer, or PVE).<br />

Postal questionnaires were sent to 285 of these 6,453 employers, who were unable to answer the cost related questions in the survey over the telephone. The postal questionnaire was returned by 170 employers.
