A UTR (unique tax reference) number is a 10-digit number issued directly by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). They are completely unique to each and every UK taxpayer and help HMRC to identify them within their systems.
HMRC issue UTR Numbers to individuals, companies, partnerships, trusts and other types of organisations. When you register with HMRC, they will usually issue your UTR number automatically.
If you lose your UTR number, we able to re request this from HMRC for you for an additional fee. It usually takes around 15 working days to be issued by HMRC and is sent directly to the company’s Registered Office Address.
