HMRC guidance manuals on GOV.UK
13 January 2016
HMRC has recently transferred four of their guidance manuals from the HMRC website to GOV.UK:
- Employment Income Manual (EIM)
- Employee Tax Advantaged Share Scheme User Manual (ETASSUM) (new)
- Pensions Tax Manual (PTM)
- Scottish Taxpayer Technical Guidance (STTG) (new).
Unfortunately some issues, which were not present during testing, have been identified. They include missing hyperlinks, formatting of indented text and bullet lists and quotes - particularly when there is a combination of two of these styles.
HMRC has informed stakeholders that their first priority has been to resolve the missing hyperlinks, and they have successfully implemented a fix for this.
Their next priority is to resolve the formatting problems, for which they have identified the cause and are in the process of developing and testing a solution. In light of this there may be a delay in other HMRC manuals going live on GOV.UK, but the hope is to have a fix in place during January.
For now, the previous version of affected manuals will also remain available on the old HMRC website.
