How to register an overseas national as a partner without a national insurance number

I have been asked to set up a partnership between two individuals in the UK. One person is living in S. Africa and doesnt have a UK national insurance number. HMRC have informed me i would need to get a CWF1 filled in for each partner but have said without a NINO for the person living abroad, Longbenton won't set him up!

Please advise/share experiances of how other accountants manage to register unincorporated businesses owned by overseas nationals living overseas without a national insurance number!

Many thanks for your help
