old computerThe below message has been released by HMRC, regarding them “switching off” access to services via older internet browsers from 30 September 2015:

“A change in our IT support will mean that people with older internet browsers will soon be unable to connect to our online services. This change is in line with many other commercial and financial organisations. However, it should not affect you if you use a current browser to connect to our services.

Browsers using SSLv3 protocol are affected, so unless your browser (or other software) supports ‘Transport Layer Security’ (TLS) 1.0 or above, you will no longer be able to connect to our services after 30 September 2015.

Users of third party software that do not use a browser to connect to our online services, should contact their vendor if they are unsure if their product does not support TLS.
