Still Searching for ‘direct.gov?’

Are you still searching for ‘direct.gov’ when trying to access government services and information, like HMRC? If so, you’re certainly not alone. Many people have searches saved, or are just in the habit of keying the direct.gov domain but it has actually changed to gov.uk. So if you are looking for the former direct.gov information and services, you can now find them at: www.gov.uk.

Areas of particular importance for those of you seeking ‘financial advice’ related information, are as follows:

MoneyForce

Direct.gov former pages on MoneyForce can now be found at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/moneyforce. For those of you who are unfamiliar with MoneyForce, it is a site for that provides financial advice for serving personnel and their families.

Tax

Direct.gov former pages on Tax can now be found at: https://www.gov.uk/browse/tax. The pages include the governmental write-ups on Capital Gains Tax, Inheritance Tax Planning, VAT and interestingly… dealing with HMRC. (It’s ok, we’ve checked and the latter is largely about disagreements you might have with HMRC, or over tax decisions!)

Pensions

Direct.gov former pages on Pensions can now be found at: https://www.gov.uk/browse/working. Please note that the link takes you to a section entitled ‘Working, jobs and pensions.’ You then have to either scroll through the massive list to find what you want by chance, or use the search function to pinpoint an exact match. So, obviously we recommend the search!
