HMRC launches official Windows 10 app for all your tax needs

HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) has rolled out an official app for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. The app allows one to connect their Government Gateway account to their Windows PC and phone.

Here's what you can currently achieve with the HMRC app for Windows:

  • Check your next tax credits payment date
  • View your personal tax account
  • Track forms you've sent to HMRC
  • Read messages and latest news from HMRC online.

It's basic but gets the job done. HMRC states on the Windows Store listing that more features are being developed and will be added in future. You can grab it from the store and give it a try on both Windows 10.

Download HMRC from the Windows Store (opens in new tab)

Thanks anonymous for the heads up!

  • Not available for mobile yet...
  • Still amazing they support Windows.
  • And still no app from Santander..... Glad to see support from HMRC nonetheless.
  • I keep pestering Santander on twitter....but not doing much good yet
  • Tell them you will switch to NatWest
  • I used to work for Santander.
    Keep pestering them on twitter, yes. But more importantly, make a complaint because these are logged and tracked.
    Best way to do it is by leaving negative feedback through a secure message within online banking. Make sure you use the word complaint, this means they have to log it as such.
  • Brilliant.
  • Not available for mobile at present ?
  • Download it on PC, then goto "My Library" on your phone in the store and you can download it from there
  • Scratch that. It was downloading but then failed lol
  • Fantastic, should make things easier, hopefully they add application forms because its a pain to fill in their online ones to even worse when they only have a PDF version.
  • I hope they have tested this app thoroughly as trying to get through to HMRC is a nightmare. Last time I spent 2 hours trying to get through to someone and when I got through.... They weren't much help as their systems were down..... Lol....
  • The state of Windows 10 mobile is so weird.. Some companies seem to believe, some don't...
  • Hope is, the more that do believe, the more the non-believers take notice. That's more true for W10 but applies to W10M as well.
  • Well business people like apps too
  • I can't get it to sign in, just takes me to a page that doesn't exist and goes round in circles, so... terrific start!
  • Oh. Now it's working. It just loads the website next to a picture of a woman. What a waste of time!
  • Not that I'm complaining, but it's strange that HMRC are going against official government advice from the GDS (part of Cabinet Office) that states no agency should develop apps, as the GOV.UK website is responsive and should be primary source.
  • Perhaps it's a web wrapper?
  • I do t think they will ever yield, Windows not big enough for them apparently.
  • Hmm looks like we will have to wait longer for the store to populate... As it says it's not available for mobile just PC.
  • Nice
  • Well, this is better than another app leaving the store!
  • Would be handy if one could link the billpay facility to make vat and corporation tax payments.....although its pretty straightforward to do on their website
  • Spending tax money to build app for failed mobile platform with no users. Makes perfect sense.
  • I disagree, with the MS focus clearly on enterprise it should become an increasing market ;P
