HMRC contact number

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) are the UK’s Tax and Custom’s Authority. They have been in existence since 2005 when an Act of Parliament led to the creation of the HMRC by merging the Inland Revenue with HM Customs and Excise.

Most people will typically come in to contact with HMRC while they are working. This is because the employer handles deducting Income Tax and National Insurance from an individual’s salary on behalf of the HMRC.

Alternative ways to contact HM Revenue & Customs

HMRC see their purpose as being twofold. The first is to make sure that UK public services have the funding they need to operate. They do this by maximising the collection of tax revenue. This means carrying out a variety of collection, compliance and enforcement activities to achieve this. Secondly it is to help those who need targeted financial support. This can, for example, include the payment of tax credits or Child Benefit to families and individuals. To do all of this, HMRC has a broad range of responsibilities that cover both people and businesses. These include:

  • Collection of taxes – includes both personal and business taxation.
  • Environmental taxes.
  • VAT.
  • Customs duty.
  • Excise duties.
  • Trade Statistics.
  • National Insurance.
  • Tax Credits.
  • Child Benefit.
  • National Minimum Wage enforcement.
  • Recovery of Student Loan repayments.

They make a number of these services available online. For example, it is possible for a person to submit their self-assessment tax return online.

HMRC look to provide a service that individuals and businesses can work with and use. To do this they make it possible to contact them. Rather than use just the one contact number, they provide several 0300 contact numbers. The HMRC contact number to use will depend on the service they offer. If you go to the HMRC website at, you can find details of which HMRC contact number to call.

Since the services they offer all have financial implications, it is important to notify HMRC of any changes in circumstances straight away. This can be done by using the appropriate HMRC contact number to let them know about the change or to find out more information if necessary.
