We posted in January listing some of the services we were expecting to start using GOV.UK Verify before March 2015. This post provides an update on our plans.
Five of the services we listed as starting to use GOV.UK Verify early this year are now connected to the hub. These are:
- PAYE Change or Update Your Company Car Tax
- HMRC Self-assessment
- Rural payments
- Tax credit change of circumstances
- PAYE Check your income tax estimate
The first 3 of the services listed above are available as public betas. The remaining 2 are in private beta with small numbers of invited users.
Next month people will start being able to claim a tax refund using GOV.UK Verify, as HMRC trial the digital submission of one of their iforms.
The table below gives our updated list of services planning to adopt GOV.UK Verify in the next 6 months. Some new services have been added to the list, some have moved to an earlier connection date and some have moved later, as we would expect.
