During the last five financial years HMRC collected the following total cash receipts for the Aggregates Levy (AGL) from UK taxpayers:

2014/15 = £342 million

2015/16 = £356 million

2016/17 = £374 million

2017/18 = £376 million

2018/19 = £367 million

HMRC publish this information within the Aggregates Levy Bulletin:

https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/aggregates-levy-bulletin

No disaggregation of AGL receipts collected from quarries and sandpits in Northern Ireland is available, as this information is not recorded on trader returns or cash receipts.
