Some of our practice guides and a technical manual have been removed from our website thanks to the availability of alternative guidance. Recently we have:

  • developed our YouTube channel to offer a wealth of tutorials and guidance videos about our Business e-services
  • provided a number of training modules in our Customer training section
  • integrated guidance for our customers within the services themselves.

While introducing so much new online guidance, we have also looked at where some of our existing written guides are now copied elsewhere. That’s why we have decided to withdraw the following.

Technical Manual Part 2

With more accessible, easy-to-follow visual demonstrations of how to use our services now available, we have decided to withdraw this manual. We have also made some small amendments to the Technical Manual Part 1 to remove references to the Technical Manual Parts 1 and 2. This single manual will describe the technical aspects and requirements for using our Business e-services. At the same time, we have removed the section in the Technical Manual Part 1 which refers to citizen accounts. We will restore this section when necessary. We have also updated our Code of Practice to refer to the single technical manual. The code governs changes we make to the Network Access Agreement and to the Technical Manual. As we are not changing the substance of the code, we will not be consulting on the changes.
