Technical guidance

When to use

Use this pattern where the majority of the users are tax agents or professionals who need the really complex guidance to deal with their clients affairs.

You must discuss with a Senior Content Designer if you want to use this pattern for any other reason.

How to design using this pattern


A collection that contains these items:

  1. A single detailed guide designed to help users (especially unrepresented taxpayers):
    • understand the basics of the subject
    • decide if this affects them
    • understand any tasks they might complete themselves
  2. Additional detailed guides or publications that:
    • have clear titles and summaries and meet minimal GOV.UK standards
    • cover all the different tasks or topics that tax agent or specialist users may need
    • provide the detail and use technical terminology specialist users will expect
