HMRC Verify is '2nd class'

By Andrew Orlowski, 18 Apr 2016

HMRC's new Personal Tax portal won't work fully with new ID system Verify.

You can do your personal tax management online, but the GOV.UK webpage warns "you won’t be able to use some services" if you use Verify.

Instead you’ll need the Government Gateway to get all the services, HMRC warns.

It’s a further blow to the Cabinet Office’s shiny new ID system Verify, which requires a third party broker, but is still incomplete after four years. It still can’t handle business accounts either. ®
