Tax by tax, spend by spend
In the pages listed below, we have taken the information available in our key documents and elsewhere on our website – supplemented by external sources including the Office for National Statistics, HMRC, DWP and the Institute for Fiscal Studies – and gathered it together for each line of our fiscal forecast, tax-by-tax and spend-by-spend.
For each one it describes what the tax or spending line represents in the real world, how the amount of money raised or spent has evolved in recent years and sets out our most recent forecast and how it is performing against the latest data. It also provides background information about how we produce each forecast, how they have evolved over time and other issues that we hope will be of interest.
As with all our work, we would welcome user feedback on the content and presentation of these pages to [email protected]
Some Forecasts in-depth pages have not been updated for the latest forecast. We will endeavour to update them as soon as possible.
