For questions regarding Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs, the tax entity in the UK.
HM Revenue and Customs are the UK’s tax authority.
They are responsible for making sure that the money is available to fund the UK’s public services and for helping families and individuals with targeted financial support.
We were established by Act of Parliament in 2005 as a new department replacing the Inland Revenue and Customs and Excise.
We are a non-ministerial Department established by the Commissioners for Revenue and Customs Act (CRCA) 2005, replacing the Inland Revenue and Customs and Excise. CRCA vested responsibility for the administration of the tax system in Commissioners appointed by the Queen. The Commissioners are drawn from the Department’s top management.
