£161 million government investment to increase HMRC compliance and debt management capacity

House of parliament

24th March 2022

Rishi Sunak announced that in addition to the £100m already pledged back in March 2021 to tackle fraud, the government will invest a further £161 million over the next five years to increase compliance and debt management capacity in HMRC.

The increase in staff is expected to bring in more than £3 billion of additional tax revenues over the next five years. HMRC staff will provide greater support to taxpayers seeking to pay off accrued tax debts, and to tackle the most complex tax risks, ensuring large and mid-sized businesses pay the tax they owe.
