Statistics at HMRC

HMRC statistics on taxes and benefits administered by HMRC.

We publish around 100 statistics on a regular basis. They provide accurate and impartial information about tax collected by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and benefits and credits administered by HMRC. In 2020, we started publishing statistics on the COVID-19 support schemes.

You can find HMRC’s statistics published before 2012 on The National Archives website.

Forthcoming publications and announcements

Publication dates for HMRC’s statistical outputs are pre-announced on the statistics release calendar. An annual publication plan can also be found on the announcements page.

As part of the Code of Practice for Official Statistics, any changes to the schedule, including unscheduled revisions, will be detailed on the announcements page.

Office for Statistics Regulation review of HMRC statistics

HMRC commissioned the Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR) to undertake a review of its analytical and quality assurance processes in relation to official statistics. The OSR published its report, ‘Strengthening the quality of HMRC official statistics’ on 30 April 2020.

HMRC welcomes and accepts the findings and recommendations of this review and has written to OSR on how it will progress the recommendations. HMRC has published a work programme for improving HMRC statistics quality.
