  • they may use the Revenue NSW logo on their website or download the logo for use in printed material
  • they may use information posted on an Revenue NSW website
  • they may copy information used on an Revenue NSW website.

Policy

This policy applies to:

  • links to an Revenue NSW website from an external website

Requirements for linking to an Revenue NSW website

Revenue NSW encourages relevant organisations to create links to information on the Revenue NSW website as appropriate, however, you are advised to comply with the following guidelines:

As many of the subpages on the Revenue NSW site are subject to change, Revenue NSW advises that you link directly to the homepage of the relevant Revenue NSW website. If you do create a link to a subpage, Revenue NSW strongly recommends that you check these links on a regular basis to ensure the page is still in use.

Link to take clients directly to an Revenue NSW page

Any links to an Revenue NSW page should forward the client directly to Revenue NSW's website. Revenue NSW pages should not be opened within a frame in your own website, or otherwise present the information as being a part of your site.

Use of the Revenue NSW logo

Under no circumstances should an organisation use the Revenue NSW logo on their website or download a copy of an Revenue NSW logo for use in printed material without permission from Revenue NSW.

Use of logo on external websites

The only time when the Revenue NSW logo may be used on a non-Revenue NSW site is where Revenue NSW has a business partnership with another organisation, such as a Client Service Provider (CSP). In this case, the organisation in question must:

  • apply to Revenue NSW's Manager, Business Communications for permission to use the logo. Requests should be emailed to Attn: Manager, Business Communications
  • meet Revenue NSW's corporate identity requirements regarding use of the logo. These will be supplied on request.
  • submit a copy of the proposed layout including the Revenue NSW logo to the Revenue NSW Manager, Business Communications for approval before using the logo on a live site.
Note: Revenue NSW reserves the right to request removal of the logo from an external website at any time.

Use of logo in printed material

If you wish to obtain a copy of an Revenue NSW logo to use in a report, proposal or other similar document, please contact us to obtain permission and for a high resolution version of the logo.
