The Ministry for Revenue’s debt collection and recoveries division achieved only one-third of its target for recovering outstanding debt due for the financial year ending in 2018.

The Ministry of Finance’s report to cabinet for 2017-18 shows that government debt collectors are falling well behind a target of recovering 25 per cent of all outstanding money owed government each year.
