Revenue got it wrong

Consider this situation:

The Revenue have amended a tax calculation resulting in a sizeable refund.

On checking it is found that they have ignored a lump of income which was submitted in the return.

Before we could inform them of the error the client has seen it and told us not to correct it, he will take the chance that they won't notice!!

Very uncomfortable about this - what should be done?
