My understanding is that errors tend to be random: eliminating errors that close the tax gap will be offset by eliminating errors that widen the tax gap.
If we're actually talking about VAT-fraud, then individuals who have been intent on committing VAT- fraud in the past, are unlikely to be deterred by digitisation.

Thin end of wedge
As a "society" we surely have to tolerate the inconvenience of others as the price to enjoy our own individual freedoms.
Given the enthusiasm that some authorities show for charging for services that are already funded by the rate-payer, e.g. refuse management, and the ingenious ways in which they now raise revenue, e.g. parking meters, speed cameras, ... this is another tranche of the thin end of a revenue raising wedge, and must be resisted at all cost.

Should employers take a more proactive approach to employee's we
Here, here. An interesting report that needs to be explored further.
Is your workforce a healthy, happy and productive one?With ever increasing demands and deadlines being placed on workers, often resulting in a highly stressed work force, it would seem imperative employers should strive to implement an appropriate intervention to reduce stress. By doing so, employers reap the rewards of a productive workforce, reduced staff absenteeism, and a generally happier staff relationship with management. This can further display the company’s gratitude to employees through care of their wellbeing, with the benefit for the company being that they see an increase in staff retention and profit.Maintain your most valuable assetTaking a proactive approach to managing the health of your people makes good business sense. In addition, it demonstrates your commitment to your staff.Did you know?Over 175 million working days are lost to ill health each year, with the annual economic cost of stress and sickness absence estimated to be over £100billionStress, musculoskeletal and back pains are among the most common (and most preventable) causes of absence in manual and non-manual workers.The average level of sickness absence is 8.4 days per employee, per year, at an average cost of £780 per employeeWhy not supplement your current Occupational Health provision?Many businesses already conduct health screenings for their employees that help highlight areas for improvement, e.g. blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose checks. The DYMONDstrength Health & Wellbeing assessment service allows each individual to be educated into how they can improve on these areas and monitors the workforce through the development of an effective Health & Wellbeing programme.A successful health and well-being programme, where employee physical and mental well-being is protected and improved, results in sustained staff morale leading to greater workplace engagement and in turn drives increased productivity.For more information visit www.dymondstrength.com, call today on 07739 791 939, or email us at [email protected] .
