London-based accountancy firm Blick Rothenberg confirmed this is 4.47% higher than the previous year and £680m up in the last quarter alone.
The statistics showed a 3.15% increase in PAYE receipts and 4.8% increase in National Insurance takings over the same period.
Frank Nash, partner at Blick Rothenberg, said: “The Office for National Statistics released figures last week showing that unemployment is at a five-year low of 2.21m, and so clearly the impact of more people in jobs is starting to come through in the PAYE and NIC figures, which are up just over £9bn in the past 12 months”
The figures also indicated that HMRC has collected £100m from the Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED) for 2013/14, which is a third up on the budgeted amount of £75m.
However, initial figures for April collections so far show only £40m collected for 2014/15 charge which was due by the end of that month.
Frank noted: “This will indicate either that residential properties are being removed from companies, which is what HMRC wants, or that further ATED charges have not yet been collected.”
