If linking to a PDF form, in most cases you should also supply a Word document. Some documents can be rewritten into web pages. Read more about documents and links.

Send or submit

Use ‘submit your form’, not ‘send’.

Don’t use lodge, unless for legal actions.

Fill in a form

Use ‘fill in’ a form. Don’t use ‘fill out’ or ‘complete’.

Form names

The name you use for a form does not have to exactly match the official name. If it is long or complex, rewrite it in plain English.
