I've dug this number up for you as an alternative: 01726 293293

It's not free but it's cheaper to call that if you have free evening and weekend calls on your call plan.

HMRC are starting to replace some 0845 numbers with 0345 numbers as they are cheaper due to being normally charged at landline rates, and included within "free" minutes on mobile contracts.

The post above my MARKJ9NST gives the new number for Tax Credits.
