HMRC software developer pages have now moved to GOV.UK

17 December 2014


HMRC have confirmed that the software developer pages and technical packs have now moved to GOV.UK

The link to use is this one. HMRC say that existing links will redirect for a period of time and a small amount of content will still be hosted on the HMRC site for a little while longer.

In addition, there is the option to 'sign up to email alerts' for any changes to software developer content. However this will alert you to changes for any of the software developer pages and not just the online service that you are interested in e.g. PAYE, SA etc.

The aim is that this work should have no impact on HMRC’s customers – you should not need to do anything except start to use the guidance on GOV.UK.

But HMRC point out that “you can choose to get involved and help us to make sure the content and tools we develop meet your needs. All pages on GOV.UK include a link (near the bottom of the page) for you to tell us if there’s something that isn’t working well for youand the GOV.UK feedback form can accessed using the link below (and it can also be found in the 'Contact' area of GOV.UK) -
