Jobseekers are being encouraged to download HMRC’s app to make it easier to access important info usually requested by potential employers.

Last year, the HMRC app was opened over 80 million times – it allows people to quickly find their employment history and National Insurance number to pass on to a new employer.

Nigel Huddleston MP, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, said, “When people apply for a job the last thing they want to be doing is wasting time on the phone to HMRC to find their National Insurance number or tax code, which is why I encourage job-seekers to save themselves effort in the future and join 1.2 million monthly users and start using HMRC’s fantastic app.”

Myrtle Lloyd, HMRC’s Director General of Customer Services, added, “With the new year bringing new opportunities and career aspirations for many, our app is a great way to securely access your tax code, National Insurance number, and employment details – information a new employer may ask for. A few taps will save you a call and the information is accessible at any time.”

HMRC says they still receive around three million calls a year with people waiting on hold for information that they could quickly and easily access digitally via the app instead.
