When registering with the HMRC, you’ll need to provide some information about yourself and your business, including your name, your address, and your National Insurance number. You’ll also have to provide details about your business activities, such as your turnover and the nature of your business. Depending on the type of registration, you may also be required to provide additional documentation, such as your company’s house certificate of incorporation. Once you’ve registered with HMRC, you’ll receive a Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) number, which usually takes around 10 working days depending on how busy HMRC is. Your UTR number is a 10-digit number that identifies you and your business to HMRC. You will need to use your UTR number whenever you communicate with HMRC, for example when you file your tax returns or pay your taxes.
