HMRC’s latest digital strategy (2014) sets out a refreshed and comprehensive vision, reflecting our activities in the last year and our ambition for the next few years.

Every customer in the UK will have their own personalised digital tax account, so we can help make it simpler, quicker and easier to pay the right tax at the right time.

We will design digital services for our customers that:

  • are easy-to-use, convenient and personalised for individuals, businesses and agents
  • promote digital take-up and voluntary compliance by designing for customer needs
  • use data to help customers avoid errors through pre-population
  • provide assistance in using or accessing our services for those who need it

By doing this we will:

  • maximise revenue
  • improve the customer experience
  • minimise costs
