The personal incomes statistics release and national statistics tables 3.1 to 3.15a are derived from the annual Survey of Personal Incomes (SPI).
More information about the survey can be found in the statistical release.
Income Tax liabilities and receipts
HMRC also produce statistics on both Income Tax liabilities and receipts. If you require statistics about how much tax is actually paid and collected by HMRC in any given year, or information on how tax is collected, then you should look at statistics on Income Tax receipts.
If you require detailed breakdowns of income taxpayer numbers and the distribution of tax liabilities across taxpayers and tax bands, then you should look at statistics on tax liabilities.
Publication and revision strategy
These statistics are published annually, usually in December/January. Release dates will be announced on the UK Statistics Hub and the HMRC national statistics release schedule. Any delays to the publication date will be announced on the HMRC national statistics website.
HMRC is committed to providing impartial quality statistics that meet user needs. HMRC encourages users to engage with them so they can improve the official statistics and identify gaps in the statistics that are produced.
