Statistics covering the taxes administered by HM Revenue & Customs
On this site are the National Statistics and official statistics publications of HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), produced in line with the Code of Practice for official statistics. These statistics cover HMRC's main work from collecting tax to paying out personal tax credit and Child Benefit. The main taxes and duties are Income Tax, National Insurance, VAT and Corporation Tax.
In total there are around 100 annually produced statistical products which are based on a few core themes for which these statistics fall under. For further ease of reference the statistics are also available from the A-Z index list on the right.
Official statistics are defined in Section 6 of the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007. Only those statistics that are assessed as compliant with the Code of Practice for official statistics will be designated as 'National Statistics' and are marked with the National Statistics quality kite mark. Publications in the tax expenditures, ready reckoners, tax credits, Child Benefit, (take up rates), (error and fraud), and (small area data) child poverty, Child Trust Fund, PAYE (Pay As You Earn) banking sector and tax gaps statistics are outside the scope of National Statistics.
