New contact number for employee tax enquiries

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has announced that, in future, there will be just a single telephone point of contact for employee tax enquiries.

The number is 0845 300 0627.

Employers as well as employees can use this number if there are issues with employee tax codes.

But for any other enquiries related to the running of a payroll, employers should continue to call the Employer Helpline.

The new number is to replace some 60 older numbers, which are due to be ‘switched off’, said HMRC.

Employers are being urged to amend any correspondence with employees so that references to tax offices include only the new number.
