HMRC has changed the dedicated phone number for the coronavirus helpline targeted at businesses and the self-employed to 0800 024 1222.


All calls to the original 0300 number will be redirected to the new HMRC coronavirus helpline.


Opening hours for the helpline will be 8am to 4pm Monday to Friday.


HMRC recommends using digital services and accessing information via business’ tax accounts.


HMRC will be able to discuss the following:

  • Agreeing an instalment arrangement;
  • Suspending debt collection proceedings; and
  • Cancelling penalties and interest where you have administrative difficulties contacting or paying HMRC immediately.
