Inland Revenue Helpline Phone Number

 0843 178 4204

You can no longer contact Inland Revenue as its own separate department. Since April 2005, the Inland Revenue Department merged with HM Customs and Excise. All responsibilities for both governmental departments now come under HM Revenue and Customs. For this reason, when you call 0843 178 4204 to reach Inland Revenue, it will connect you to HMRC instead.

Inland Revenue Contact Numbers

Inland Revenue was responsible for the collection of several types of tax. HMRC now deals with all of these. By calling these numbers for help with the relevant taxes, you will reach HMRC. They will then provide the same service to you as Inland Revenue would have. See below for phone helpline opening hours and further down the page for postal addresses for each department.

Income Tax

You must pay tax on most types of income, which your employer usually deducts from your paychecks. People in self-employment have to report their earnings and fill out Self Assessment tax returns. HMRC oversees the payment of Income Tax now, so call 0843 178 4205 if you have concerns relating to this tax. Contact HMRC to update your tax code if your income changes, as you may get a refund for any tax deductions if your income is under the Personal Allowance limit.

Capital Gains Tax

When you sell or dispose of an asset after an increase in its value, you must pay tax on the gain. Some assets are tax-free, and you won’t have to pay tax if your gains for the year are lower than the tax-free allowance. Call 0843 178 4206 to report your capital gains for the tax year, or for help with working out if you owe any tax on your gains. Where you would have contacted Inland Revenue about this, HMRC now handles tax reports and payments on capital gains.

Stamp Duty Land Tax

You have to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax when you buy property above £125,000-£150,000 in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. If you’re buying your first home, you might have to pay less or even no tax. HMRC may charge you interest if you don’t send a tax return and pay the tax within 30 days of completing ownership of the property. Call 0843 178 4207 for assistance with calculating your Stamp Duty Land Tax, or to claim tax relief or an exemption from tax.

Petroleum Revenue Tax

Profits from UK oil and gas production are subject to taxes. This only applies to “taxable fields” from earlier than 16th March 1993. From 1st January 2016, Petroleum Revenue Tax has a rate of zero. This means that taxable fields can become non-taxable if they are withdrawn from the PRT scheme. Call 0843 178 4208 for more information on how this affects your income shares on production fields, or if you are responsible for a field and want to opt out of the PRT regime.

Tax Credits

Tax credits provide tax relief for people working for low income or who are responsible for children. This includes Working Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit. The conditions for these types of tax credits are different, so call 0843 178 4209 if you need to check your eligibility. You can apply for tax credits in advance if you know your income is going to drop. If you want to backdate your claim for more than the standard 31 days, contact HMRC to find out who is able to do this.
