On 1 November we passed on a communication from HMRC that changes to the Government Gateway Platform would not be taking place over the weekend of 3rd and 4th November, but would take place on 17th & 18th November.
We have today been informed by HMRC that the weekend for changes to the Government Gateway has had to be put back once more. These changes will now take place on the weekend of 24th and 25th November (making many services read only for those 2 days) with normal service resumed on 26th November. This has been necessary so that HMRC can minimise disruption to users as a result of the changes they need to make and be absolutely sure that services will not be read only for more than 2 days.
HMRC offers its sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.
