UTR Number

Term

A unique taxpayer reference number is a 10 digit code that HMRC will use to identify you, the number will never change. It’ll be needed if you file a tax return or you need to claim benefits.

Different types of UTR number:

Before filing a tax return, HMRC needs to know you’re earning untaxed income, so you have to register for a self assessment, usually done by 5th October the tax year after the money has been earned.

A UTR number usually takes 10 working days to come through after an application.
