How do I log in to HMRC now?

Log in to HMRC’s replacement system, HMRC Online Services.

Can I still use my old Government Gateway user ID and password?

Yes, but only for HMRC Online Services.

What if I forgot my login details?

If you don’t remember your sign in details, here is how you can find your Government Gateway user ID.

You can also reset your old user ID and password. Though, we are unsure how long you will be able to do this for.

Instead, we recommend you sign up for the HMRC Online Services.

How about other services that used to use the Government Gateway?

It all depends on which service you need: DVLA, Department of Agriculture, etc.
