The Revenue is tracking down the final 95 employers in its investigation into the temporary wage subsidy scheme, after clawing back €28.5 million.

The first wage subsidy scheme between last March and July cost €2.8 billion for 678,000 workers, which accounted for one-third of the entire workforce.

The Revenue checked all 66,000 employers who took part in the scheme, but it quickly narrowed down its compliance investigation to around 1,900 employers.
