Registration is easy and fast. You will need your National Insurance number and date of birth to get started.
Depending on what your phone supports, you can use your face or fingerprint to sign in quickly and securely.
In the HMRC app you can see details about your job and salary and how your Income Tax, tax-free amount and take-home pay are calculated. If you have any income from a private pension then you can also see this.
You can also see your National Insurance number, Self Assessment Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) and tax code.
You can check when tax credits have been paid and when your next tax credits payment is due. You can also renew your tax credits.
The HMRC tax calculator tells you how much National Insurance and Income Tax you need to pay for the tax year 2019 to 2020. You can use it to work out your take-home pay if you change your working hours, the amount you earn changes or you get a new job.
Help to Save is a government savings account for people claiming tax credits and some other benefits. It gives you a bonus of 50p for every £1 you save. Find out if you are eligible for Help to Save in the app.
In the app you can track your savings and see how much your bonus is. You can set up savings reminders so that you remember to save each month.
Use the form tracker to find out when you can expect a response to forms you have sent to HMRC.
We have made a number of improvements to the user experience of access codes. They are more accessible for people who use assistive technologies. There is also more detailed help for access codes, support for screen rotation when signing in, and a new way to enter access codes from external authentication apps.
Users who had chosen a default browser other than Safari were unable to access certain website links in the app. We have fixed this issue.

I find the app helpful
It’s taking me quite a while to “get the hang of” I.E. understand the workings of the HMRC app. I now use it when I have dealings with Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) Service. I find it really helpful! May I suggest when you’ve been allocated a User ID (It should be 12 digits from what I understand!), that You MAKE SURE YOU MAKE A NOTE OF IT SOMEWHERE YOU CAN ALWAYS ACCESS, otherwise you need to go through a SECURITY PROCESS to set up another HMRC ACCOUNT with a New User ID! It’s also good to make a note somewhere secure OF your Password and your Access PIN (6 digits) to enable you to be able to access the app. And finally I would highly recommend setting up Touch ID/FACE ID as well as registering your main mobile number to receive Access Codes IN CASE you get locked out of the app for any reason! Thanks for reading.

Tax credit renewal is confusing
This is the first year I have used the app to renew my tax credits. Initially I was prompted for a PIN but didn’t have one. The app needs to explain for first time users that they will be directed to create a PIN the first time they use the app AFTER they have logged in. I then had to re-complete the login process using two factor authentication text sent to my phone and was subsequently asked to create a PIN which I did and enable fingerprint ID.
The questions in the app seemed clear and easy to follow with one notable exception. The total earnings figure is automatically generated from my P60. Fine, but there is nowhere to input allowable deductions such as allowable pension contributions and uniform maintenance allowance. Having worked my way round the questions several times in a loop I reasoned the only way to report these deductions was to amend the P60 figure, despite the online form confusingly stating that this field was for the earnings figure BEFORE deductions. There is NOWHERE ELSE to input any other earnings figure. This is confusing and will lead to underpayment of tax credits if people are not aware of this and do not include their allowable deductions here.
I do find this app very useful and informative. Easy to access and all needed information is straight forward to access.
The only complaint I have is the updates. Some I sort of understand needed PIN number again to activate the finger print log on after a update This happens after a phone restart too which is a must.
But some of the update required a complete re-login with government ID etc which took much longer than it should do when I was an update. I really don’t want to update an app now just in case it requires me to keep doing that. Other banking app remembers the finger print and if need verification is done to a phone number which I think should be the next choice.
But all in all a good clear app.
