is changing

GOV.UK will launch in October

GOV.UK will be the new home for government services and information. GOV.UK will replace and Directgov, making it simpler, clearer and faster to find what you need from government. Content and services may look a little different to what you are used to, but you can still expect to find your key business information and transactions.

To get an idea of how GOV.UK will work, you can use and give feedback on a trial, or 'beta', version of the website now at

Most people will not need to take any action – if you have bookmarked pages these will redirect automatically to an appropriate page on GOV.UK. If you are a registered user of, or use certain services such as Contracts Finder, you will receive information by email about the action you need to take.
