Tax information and impact notes

When to use

Use this pattern to tell users about tax policy changes when the policy is final or near final.

Do not update the content once it’s been published, unless there is a factual accuracy.

For an example of an individual tax information and impact note, check the Customs (Tariff and Reliefs) (Amendment) Regulations 2022M.

For an example of a set of documents including the tax information and impact note, check aerodromes: approval requirements.

How to design using this pattern

Document type

Publication: policy paper (with an HTML attachment)



You should reference if this relates to a specific tax, levy, duty, scheme or relief.


The summary should begin with either:

  • ‘This tax information and impact note...’ if it’s an individual document
  • ‘This measure...’ if it’s a set of documents being published for legislation day

Then read the document to come up with a summary of the paper’s contents.


Body text should be created by reading the document and adding additional information not mentioned in the title or summary that will help the user decide if this document is the one they need.

HTML attachment


Use a different title to what you have used for the landing page. The titles can be similar but cannot be exactly the same.
