Government

Getting in contact with government agencies is an often frustrating fact of life, as any time we need to update an address, apply for a driver’s license or a test, seek information on benefits or apply for them, we must do it.

The Government agencies listed below are all involved in working with the public. Anyone looking for benefits for any reasons, including jobseekers allowance, income support or incapacity benefits can call the numbers found below to get in touch with the customer support lines for the relevant departments of government.

It is also possible to use the lines found below to get into contact with support agencies for tax, particularly in the form of tax returns, self-employment tax advice, working tax credit and several other options designed to demystify taxes and make them less of a chore.

The VAT helpline can also be found below, in case you need any information or assistance regarding VAT application and payment.

If you are looking at maternity leave, the maternity allowance contact phone number can provide any information you need, and the accompanying child benefits number can provide information on whether you are entitled to claim any benefits for the child.
