HMRC: workforce management information

Documents relating to workforce management information summary data for HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and the Valuation Office Agency (VOA).

This data covers:

  • payroll staff by grade
  • non-payroll staff by type
  • headcount staff numbers
  • full-time equivalent staff numbers
  • staff costs


These figures are not official statistics. They are internal workforce management information published in the interests of transparency.

These figures have not been reconciled centrally with any National Statistics. Where differences appear between the monthly information and National Statistics, clarifying comments will be provided. The ONS quarterly public sector employment statistics provide an official headline measure for comparing the overall size of employment in central government organisations with other sectors of the economy at the relevant quarterly reference point.

Some organisations may not have information available for each month, and at this stage coverage may therefore not reach 100% for those organisations in scope. Given the wide range of organisations covered, caution should be exercised when drawing inferences from the figures and care should be taken when making comparisons between organisations.

Data on staff numbers are a snapshot of the last day in the relevant period. For example, the data for 2010 to 2011 relate to 31 March 2011, and the data for April 2011 relate to 30 April 2011.

Data on staff costs are for the whole of the relevant period. For example, the data for 2010 to 2011 cover the entire financial year, while data for April 2011 reflect the total staff cost incurred in that month.
