Not everyone has a UTR number. If you have registered to complete a self assessment tax return, you should have a UTR (Unique Taxpayer Reference) number. If you do not complete a tax return usually you will not have one.
Your UTR number is isused by HMRC (often known as the Inland Revenue) and it is a unique 10 digit ID, for example ’1234567890′. HMRC use your UTR number to identity you and your tax records.
Where to find your UTR Number
If you have registered for self assessment you can find your UTR number in a number of locations including:
- On your Tax Return – Inland Revenue Form SA100
- On a ‘Notice to Complete a Tax Return’ – Inland Revenue Form SA316
- Statement of Account
Depending on which of the above forms you use, your UTR number may be located next to one of the following headings:
- Tax Reference
- Offical Use
