Top Tips

HM Revenue and Customs are about as fun to call as a funeral home. However, we can help you without taxing (hur hur) your patience.

  • Contrary to popular belief, HMRC remains OPEN on bank holidays and the call wait time is minimal!
  • On major tax ‘events’ such as the Self Assessment deadline- HMRC stays open for limited hours on Sundays.
  • Evenings are always worse than mornings, don’t be tempted to put off your call.
  • The days preceding and following a bank holiday weekend experience double the amount of call traffic than normal, try to avoid them.

Useful info

  • HMRC receives approximately 70 million calls a year

  • HMRC’s latest official figures showed that more than a third of calls were cut off in 2014 due to a busy system.

  • For those who managed to get through, the average waiting time reached 10 minutes and 53 seconds in September 2014.

  • The average waiting time went up by 5 minutes compared to September 2013.

  • Early morning calls have less chance to be cut off than afternoon and evening calls.

  • Detailed reports of HMRC’s business plan indicators can be found on the UK government website.

Reviews of HMRC

Siobhan Connell :

Called up about a mistake in my personal allowance tax code as my old employer was extremely slow to issue my P45 and I have a second job at the BR tax code so to HMRC it looked like I had 3 jobs so they were changing my code to 850L which is wrong. I called up and after the automated menu I was put through straight away to a very helpful lady who explained the system thought I had three jobs due to my previous employer. She then changed my details and put me back on the right code. I found it very straight forward and helpful and it put my mind at rest because I find tax stressful as a 25 year old with little real experience of the system. I called on Saturday morning at half ten. I think calling in the morning helped!

Joe Bennett, Liverpool :

BTW. I am trying to pay them 14,000 in Corporation Tax and yet their online service won't let me due to a difference in a number of digits. No explanation nothing corresponds wight he Banking online details to those given on the LETTER received from HMRC....... The money will sit in my account until you sort yourselves out and I will use this medium as proof of my attempt to pay, call and resolve the issue. To no avail due to a poorly managed service that we cannot get through to.

Joe Bennett, Liverpool :

So I am about to hang up after 28 minutes. Complete Joke and yet it has cost me money. We should not pay anything and let them take us to court and then present to the Judge the details of all the times we have endeavoured to make payment. Get a ruling against the HMRC and then reclaim all of our time and costs. The phone line talks about QUICKLY & EFFICIENTLY.......? What planet are the people living on who are supposed to be driving this machine......????? You people need to wake up and get real. One day someone will surprise you and give you a wakening up call you will never forget, we people are so tired of being walked all over........

Reviews of HMRC

Joe Bennett, Liverpool :

Sadly, this is another service that we "The Tax Payer" sit about wasting our life trying to do the right thing and the Government and its departments sit back and laugh in our face. It is no wonder we get so frustrated. I am not surprised so many of us talk about revolution these days because frankly we are being pissed all over and are expected to just sit back and take it. I have been waiting for 22 minutes now, whilst I type this and on previous occasions I have waited over 45 minutes both times. THERE IS A COST TO THIS TOO! More of our hard earned money taken from us due to a lack of adequate resources by the REVENUE DEPARTMENT. How anyone has the audacity to try to defend the service is not worth the fabric of a human being. An apology first should come followed by action to sort it out. These are the top of society, we are told. The people we pay huge amounts of money who are so much better educated than us.....? And yet fail miserably day after day and for the privilege we keep them in office and pay them massive amounts of money for being POOR. In a commerical environment you would be out of the door quick sharp. POOR SHOW INDEED AND SADLY A COMPLETE JOKE.. AS IS THE GOVERNMENT AND ITS OTHER DEPARTMENTS!!!

I have now tried 3 times to contact hmrc to arrange a direct debit repayment. Following the last call which was a frustrating 27 minute wait as it got to 8pm the service announced it was cutting me off. I was calling from my mobile as i dont have a landline and so far have spent more than 1 hour waiting and still havnt got through. Absolutely the worst customer service I have ever encountered. The hmrc website is also useless as it doesnt allow the feature to set up a dd repayment. Someone in the government needs to be accountable as the system is upsetting for customers, frustrating and stressful.

For a Government office its a disgraceful service. Second time calling and still not been put through to an advisor. Now waiting 30 minutes. No indication as to place in queue or how long I am expected to wait. Their automated service is also very poor failing to properly pick up on verbal communication.

One hour and counting....and my cordless phone battery is about to die.
I've been self employed for 10 years now and their phone service is getting worse. I understand they want you to use their website but it cant answer every question and a call to a person is needed at times. I've tried all times of the day and there doesn't seem to be a good time.

1 hour 5 mins - Im in!!!!!! - On the plus side the lady I finally got to speak to was very helpful, helped me with all of my questions and sorted out a few problems. She was excellent, however the wait was terrible. Come on HMRC!

I asked how to complain they told me to write in and that their time scales for responding to complaints was 4 months! when asked how to resolve my issue they told me to write in a letter what i have spent 3 days trying to say on the phone they will then respond in 3 months! Asked to speak to a manager they said hold the line then cut me off. This is supposed to be a public service!!

whyme :

Just waited 35 mins to get through on the self-employed helpline 0300 200 3504 and when she finally picked up I'd nearly forgotten what I was even calling for!.

HMRC are threatening debt collection agencies on NIC bills for self employed but failing to mention that these NICs are actually voluntary if you earnt below the threshold. (as I did - first yr self employed, tax return not done yet) So, I had to wait 35 mins just to get this information, which should have been on the f'ing letter. Then she said "Just write in with your 3 line income statement and ask for the bill to be waivered" but didn't even give me the goddamn f'ing address to write to. She couldn't wait to get off the phone, basically and the fact that you've waited so long to get through is just lost on them.

You can tweet them @HMRCcustomers but they're about as much use a chocolate fryin pan. They told me "You need to call the helpline for this to be waivered" when that isn't even correct; it was never given as an option. I ABSOLUTELY F'ING HATE THEM.

Why do they let people wait so long when it's not even a free call. I'm not happy I had to wait so for so long without being acknowledged. I felt I had to hang up because I didn't know how much Longer I would be in that waiting queue without any thoughtful customer update and also, I can not afford that cost.

Dissapointed by the poor public service yet paying tax for this, I wonder where the money is going because it's obviously not into improving customer service.

I waited for 54 min however, to her credit - the call centre advisor was very helpful, also very patient and due to the number of forms she needed to deal with - the call took 30 minutes to handle however she did sort things out and for the record - HMRC were the conduit for mistaken information- not the cause. That was my previous employer.

Reviews of HMRC

V Bennett :

Extremely angry to repeatedly receive inaccurate non sensical letters informing me I owe tax with no explanation (when I don't even earn enough to pay tax at the moment). When I call I am on hold for ridiculous amounts of time, never yet got through to anyone. Now I am told I will be fined if I miss the 31st Jan deadline in a letter dated 5th Feb. I am so annoyed and upset. Disgusting inept "service" and a total waste of my time for months.
