London, Aug 6: In a bid to save about 200 million pounds, the United Kingdom is considering outsourcing the process of self-assessment tax returns and other sensitive information to India, Computer Weekly reports.

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs' (HMRC) 8.5-billion pounds worth of back end operations is already being outsourced. Paris-headquartered firm Capgemini handles self-assessment tax returns and PAYE forms apart from dealing with details of National Insurance Contributions.

The Wednesday, Aug 4 issue of the magazine said that Capgemini, together with another contractor Fujitsu, is examining whether to send tax processing offshore, possibly to India.

A memo release to the internal staff revealed that the companies were looking at the 'potential offshoring of some future work, possibly to the subcontinent', the magazine said.
