The HMRC header shows external users that they are dealing with HMRC.
When to use
Use this pattern if the user needs to know they are dealing with HMRC. For example, if they need to be sure that a payment is going to the right government department.
When not to use
Do not use this pattern when the user does not need to know they are dealing with HMRC. Use the GOV.UK header.
Do not use this pattern for:
- personal tax account services – use the account header
- HMRC internal services – use the internal header
How it works
It should have:
- the HMRC logo
- a vertical teal bar on the left side
- a horizontal grey bar on the bottom
<div class="hmrc-banner" role="banner"> <div class="organisation-logo"> <p>HM Revenue & Customs</p> </div> </div>
