HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has collected an extra £29bn from its crackdown on tax dodgers, according to its 2016/17 annual report.
The taxman gathered a total £574.9bn in 2016/17 - a £38bn increase on the previous year - marking a seventh consecutive year of record total tax revenues for the government department.
It reported it had brought more than 500 serious organised criminals to justice over the last six years and handled more than 1,200 cases in courts and tribunals, winning 83% of them and protecting £15bn in tax revenues.
HMRC chief executive and permanent secretary Joe Thompson said the extra £29bn from tax dodgers, which the taxman attributed to its work on tackling avoidance, evasion and organised crime, would be spent on public services, and represented an estimated £1,000 extra for every UK household.
"We have also strengthened our grip on the minority who deliberately try to cheat the system and continue to pursue those who refuse to pay what they owe, on behalf of the honest majority," he said. "The message is clear to those who try to not pay their fair and legal share - there is nowhere left to hide."
The annual report also highlighted the HMRC's development of its online services, which among other things allow taxpayers to complete their self-assessment digitally.
It said the developments had allowed more than nine million people to access its services online, and also helped five million businesses to access their accounts online to file, pay and obtain tax help.
HMRC chief executive and permanent secretary Edward Troup said: "Our ability to collect the money required to fund the UK's public services is, of course, the ultimate yardstick by which we will be measured, but the public rightly judge us on the quality of service we provide to the overwhelming majority of people in the UK who are honest and pay the right amount of tax on time.
"There are now quick and simple online tools to allow people to deal with their taxes or tax credits anywhere, anytime and the best phone service in years for those wanting to call us."
