How do I contact HMRC?
Last updated 12 May 2020
There will be times when you need to contact the tax authority, HMRC.
The best way to find out how is from the HMRC website. Of course their availability has been affected by Covid.
HMRC's telephone numbers for self assessment are:
- Telephone: 0300 200 3310
- Textphone: 0300 200 3319
- Outside UK: +44 161 931 9070
Be careful - we have seen examples of adverts that use a premium rate telephone number for HMRC. These are not genuine HMRC numbers. You may also get a call or a text that claims to be from HMRC. These may also be scams. HMRC have advice here.
