Tax & Duty Bulletins


All bulletins provide a full historic series of data detailing amounts of goods cleared and amount of duty collected. This information is provided on a monthly, calendar and financial year basis.

In addition, each bulletin provides information on historic duty rates together with commentary on the history of the duties.

The datasets are compiled using information taken from traders' returns and from Departmental Accounting Systems.

The Bulletins are Crown Copyright . Information may be used provided that the source is acknowledged.

Changes to Indirect Tax Statistical Releases

During 2019 HMRC will be making gradual improvements to the series of statistical releases on Indirect Taxes. As part of these improvements we will be publishing all publications in the same place, hosted on the website.

Statistical Factsheets

The factsheets draw upon a broader range of material than the statistical bulletins and analyse the subject matter in greater detail. Graphs, tables and charts are used to present a variety of data and to communicate information to the user. In places, commentary is provided to support the data. Factsheets are not National Statistics and therefore their production dates are not fixed.

The Factsheets are Crown Copyright. Information may be used provided that the source is acknowledged. This permission does not extend to material identified as the copyright of a third party. Permission to reproduce this material must be obtained directly from the copyright holder.

The Value Added Tax (VAT) factsheet was previously published on this site, but the Annual VAT Statistics publication (which replaces the VAT factsheet from 2017-18 onwards) is now hosted on GOV.UK.
