Although most tax payments are made on time, around one-third are not. The level of debt in HM Revenue & Customs (the Department) fluctuates on a daily basis. The difference is mainly because these systems exclude some debt that is due but is paid almost immediately and there are timing differences in when debt is downloaded from the main tax systems. This report analyses trends in debt levels using figures from the debt management systems. The report examines: the Department's performance in managing debt; how the Department manages and prioritises debts; and, the Department's methods for collecting debt and how it encourages taxpayers to pay on time. It finds that though the Department has improved its management of tax debt. Over the last year debt as a proportion of net receipts and the age of debt has increased on some taxes.
