The HMRC app lets you quickly and securely access:
- your tax credits payments schedule
- tax code, tax estimate, income and state benefits information
- Help to Save account and savings reminders
- secure messages from HMRC

With the app it’s easy to:
- renew your tax credits
- track the forms and letters you’ve sent us
- work out take home pay, income tax and National Insurance information with our tax calculator
- get access codes to add security to personal, business and agent accounts
- set up an account – you’ll need to provide your name, National Insurance number and date of birth, and details like your passport number and salary details

You can't use the app to submit your Self Assessment, you’ll need to do that on the website.

You can only sign in to your personal tax account as an individual. You can't sign in as a business or agent.

If you’re having problems with your account that you can’t solve online, go to and search ‘contact’ to find the right helpline.

What's New

If you’ve got a Help to Save account, you can now set yourself reminders to save at the start and end of every month. You’ll never miss a chance to boost your savings and bonus again.

We’ve updated our tax calculator so it’s ready for the new tax year.

Some good points and bad points

Megz f

Overall the app is good a lot easier than having to go on the internet and having to look for what I need when all I need to do is open the app. The only downside is when checking how much I pay tax and NI when I get paid I am unable to do this on the app unlike when going on the internet where I can see how much my work are paying me and how much tax and NI is being taken off before actually being paid as this helps me with working out bill money, hopefully soon I will be able to do that on the app as well, I had high hopes for this app but disappointed

Developer Response

Hi Megz, you should be able to see your income and tax estimate in the app (though not NI contributions). If this is different from what you see on the internet, please could you email us at and we'll try to find out what the problem is?

Great app


I was sceptical about this app after suffering on a number of calls and finding it impossible to get information quickly and with ease.

I have just started using this app and so far it is accurate and provides a great way of finding out exactly ( well - exactly in terms of what is on there, being accurate as not everything is on there yet...).

I hope that everything will be on there shortly.

Worked fine for a week now can’t login


The app worked fine and was perfect for my use however today it’s not working. It asks you to login then asks you to create a 6-digit pin again, when you do this it takes you to the next page which says ‘This account is logged out. Click here to retry’

I click to retry and it just goes into a loop of logging in and the error message. Because it worked for a week I can only it’s something to do with the 7-day saved password expiring.
