The UK Government Gateway that drives online tax filing and numerous other interactions, ranging from pension scheme returns to child maintenance records, has been put to HMRC’s hands.
Theresa May confirmed that “responsibility for the government gateway will transfer from the Department for Work and Pensions to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. This change will be effective immediately.”
A spokesman for the tax department told AccountingWeb:
“Nine out of 10 gateway transactions relate to HMRC, so it makes sense for us to have ownership of it.”Oh, and by the way, the gateway fell over on Wednesday morning (30 November)!
Tax does have to be taxing.
