Policy News Journal - 2014-15

This also affects how we communicate with people who use these websites and government employees who work on these transitions.

HMRC will use their working with tax agents blog to keep tax specialists updated.

Government Digital Service (GDS) will use the Inside GOV.UK blog to write about developing and iterating GOV.UK and will keep their colleagues in government updated on the progress of transition via the Transition to GOV.UK blog .

We think this will make it much easier to find the information that’s relevant to you.

If you want to be involved with user research or have any questions about the ongoing transition of HMRC’s website please contact the new Transition Manager, Till Wirth (till.wirth@digital.cabinet-office.gov.uk).”

Updates to GOV.UK

25 July 2014

The Policy team wish to remind members about the need to be vigilant when using GOV.UK – if there are errors or omissions they should be reported.

Although we are still awaiting final deadlines, HMRC PAYE information (along with information from all government websites) is gradually moving to GOV.UK. If readers come across problems they should report them using the box at the bottom “Is there anything wrong with this page?”

HMRC PAYE and expenses and benefits information can be found by following the Employing People option on the GOV.UK Home page and selecting Payroll .

If there is anything that readers would not want to see transferred across to GOV.UK, please let the policy team know by email .

As ever we would remind members that we would value hearing their views via policy to feed into consultation.
