About HMRC and their helplines

Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is the non-ministerial UK government body which is responsible for the collection of tax within the country, as well as the payment of certain tax-related benefits including Child Benefit. Residents can call their main general enquiries phone number 0300 200 3300 to notify HMRC that they have overpaid on your income tax bill and would therefore like a refund. You should also call this helpline to notify them about a change in your circumstances that will affect the amount of tax you pay, for example if you have changed your job, moved house or married your spouse.

Lines are open from 8am-8pm Monday-Friday and 8am-4pm Saturday so please be aware that you will be unable to contact HMRC about your tax situation on a Sunday, furthermore these standard opening times may be affected on bank holidays. Calls to this helpline are charged at the same rate as calls to local 01 and 02 area code phone numbers, thus a variable per-minute rate plus a connection fee will apply. Alternatively you can call HMRC for free on this number if you have free inclusive minutes as part of your landline or mobile tariff, however please check with them for full details.
