HMRC have been working on a project to migrate existing Government Gateway Transaction Engine to a replicated service on the HMRC Digital Transaction Engine Platform.
The new Digital Transaction Engine has been live since 13th October 2017.
On the 14 February 2018 all message classes will be suspended in the existing Government Gateway and HMRC will switch this service off. HMRC will thereafter fully migrate to the new Digital Transaction Engine.
We at Andica have migrated most of our current software to work with the new Digital Transaction Engine. Software will continue as normal and customers will not notice any difference in the way the submission works.
In few cases, some technical changes may be necessary if customers are having trouble communicating with the new Digital Transaction Engine.
Firewall and anti-virus may need to be configured to allow the software to communicate through following URL:
Old Windows OS:
Customers will no longer be able to use Andica Software on old Windows OS such as Windows XP and Windows Vista. Microsoft has stopped supporting these vulnerable OS.
