The employee register initiative, launched by the tax board at the beginning of July, has brought an additional 1.4 million euros in social and income tax into state coffers, the Ministry of Finance said.

The register is mandatory, and all new staff members must be registered before they can begin work, changing the previous situation where raids on companies, specially in construction, showed many employees having just began work, and had thus not yet signed contracts and were not paying tax.

The ministry said during July and August the register was updated with the names of 5,400 people who had not declared any income in the previous year.

Construction workers topped the list with 930 new employees, followed by retail (770) and food service (320) sectors.
