Didn't I read somewhere that the HO initially wanted to charge £75 for companies to verify individuals on the NIR, but then dropped it to 57p, and the companies still weren't interested?
I doubt it. Or at least not from any informed source. The Home Office refuses to publish any meaningful information related to costs or charges, on grounds of 'commercial confidentiality', but more likely because it hasn't got a clue. This is the organisation that was obliged to put through £934 million in adjustments to get its cashbook to balance for 2004-2005, but is 'confident' it has had no fraud.
