Need help from HMRC? Time to ask Amazon Alexa

September 2018 By

HMRC has launched new and innovative technology to help more than 3 million customers renew their tax credits. The customer-focused service through Amazon Alexa is specifically for those seeking help with their tax credits renewals.

Customers with Amazon Alexa-enabled devices can ask Alexa to ‘open HMRC’. They can ask for help and information with a change of circumstances, payment information, or a renewal. Alexa doesn’t store personal information and customers cannot renew their tax credits using Alexa.

It’s just one part of HMRC’s growing online services. Tech-savvy customers can also use the HMRC App on their smartphone to:

– renew their tax credits
– check their tax credits payments schedule
– find out how much they have earned for the year
