HMRC 0845 numbers to go by December
HMRC's 0845 helpline numbers will be no more from December 2014, as they swap all lines permanently over to the 03 prefix.
All helpline numbers have now moved to 03 lines, but the Revenue has kept many 0845 equivalents to "minimise inconvenience" for users.
But from December this year, all 0845 lines will close.
HMRC said that in August, those still using 0845 numbers will hear a message about the imminent change giving the relevant 03 number they will need to use from December.
