Corrections

22 June 2021

An error was discovered in the code that produces some of our reference tables, which meant some figures had been underestimated. The reference tables have been corrected; the error does not affect any of the key messages or other tables. Following user feedback, we have changed the ordering of the reference tables and included further analysis to show the impact on income tax where deferred lump sum payments are excluded from direct tax estimates.
