UTR numbers: what is it and how to get it

-

A unique taxpayer reference (or UTR) number is a ten-digit code that's unique to you or your company.

It's intended to identify you or your business personally with HMRC for anything and everything that has to do with your tax obligations. Your UTR number will remain the same throughout your entire life, just like your National Insurance Number.

HMRC uses your UTR number to keep tabs on your tax obligations.

It provides them with an easy way to match records to payments and monitor for suspicious activity. You'll need your UTR number to complete self-assessment tax returns, work with accountants, and pre-pay taxes in instalments.

Company vs. Personal UTRs

Personal UTRs are automatically issued by HMRC to anybody who registers for self-assessment. These numbers cannot be utilized as your company UTR. Instead, you'll be assigned a separate UTR for your company after it's incorporated.

You don't need to do any work to make this happen. Companies House will notify HMRC at the appropriate time and, within days following company formation, you should receive a letter from HMRC that includes your company's UTR.

The letter will be addressed to your registered office address and will not be sent to your own personal address.
