HMRC Contact Number and Helpline

HMRC Contact Number and Helpline: 08439032982

Contact HMRC if you would like to get help with any aspect of your tax status. For income tax quieries, self assessment, PAYE or Gateway ID issues, ring the HMRC Contact Number on 08439032982. Be aware that depending on the time of year, the HMRC contact number can be very busy, particularly in March, April and May around the time of year self-assessments are submitted. HMRC is one of the busiest helplines in the UK with over 60 million calls per year. TIP: Phone before 10am Monday-Friday for the shortest queue time.

R&D Tax Claims

One of the most popular reasons to contact HMRC in 2016/2017 was for R&D (Research and Development) tax claims, these are claims that reduce your corporation tax based upon the amount of R&D your company has done throughout the year. For further information on how to submit a claim or to discuss an existing application please contact the HMRC Helpline on 08439032982.


If you have any queries relating to PAYE issues, whether it is payment dates, amount that is due, tax being applied to wages or general questions, you can contact HMRC at 08439032982.


If you are self-employed or earn money outside of your normal job you will in all likelihood be required to complete a self-assessment at the end of the tax year to divulge your total earnings. This procedure can be quite complicated and unless you have a professional, such as an accountant, to fill out all of the paperwork then you will probably have some questions along the way. Contact HMRC to discuss any self-assessment issues you may have.

Gateway ID

If you have forgotten your Gateway ID to access your personal information on the HMRC website or the password associated with it then ring 08439032982 to be directed as to the best course of action.
