The team at HMRC Digital has been delivering new and redesigned digital services that bring digital services to the forefront of HMRC’s interaction with the public. They are particularly proud of the new MDTP and according to Kalbir Sohi, Digital Service Manager, Platform as a Service at HM Revenue & Customs:
“The Tax Platform is designed to make building, testing, deploying and running micro-service based web applications very easy.”
We have been building this platform at HMRC Digital since early 2013.
