About HM Revenue and Customs

Our purpose here at HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is to collect the money that pays for the UK’s public services and give financial support to people who need it. We touch the lives of everyone in the UK through the range and scale of work that we do.

What is HM Revenue and Customs?

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is one of the largest employers in the UK with over 66,000 employees across the country. We are responsible for collecting taxes from individuals and businesses, the money we collect in tax pays for our public services and helps to fund things like schools and hospitals, build roads and public buildings, and support communities.

We also protect the workforce by enforcing minimum wage and we look after those in need by administering a range of benefits including child benefit, tax-free childcare, statutory pay and tax credits.

But we are so much more than just tax! We have people working across the UK in a wide variety of roles including commercial, property management, communications, human resources, project delivery, digital and much more.
