Patterns for the HMRC GOV.UK team

These content patterns should be used to design specialist HMRC content on GOV.UK. GOV.UK content designers should use them to make their content consistent.

Each pattern has guidance on:

  • when to use it
  • which document type to use
  • how to write specific content, like titles and summaries

If you have strong evidence of a user need or pain point that supports the decision to not follow a pattern, discuss it with a senior content designer first.
