HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) publishes information on income and tax by percentile groupings in Table 2.4 of their Income Tax statistics and distributions publication, available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/shares-of-total-income-before-and-after-tax-and-income-tax-for-percentile-groups.

HMRC also releases a publication containing quarterly statistics about pay earnings derived from Real Time Information. These statistics are relatively new and their content is under development.
