Online TR applications

Online UTR applications

Didn't find your answer?

In your recent experience, how long is it taking HMRC to issue UTRs after an online application? 

thanks

And sometimes they issue them and don't tell anyone .... the first you know is when the penalty notice arrives!

We registered a client towards the end of January 2021. We asked the client to chase it up and he was told it would be May before he got the UTR!

we are receiving UTR's for clients with income from property quickly but the self-employed applications on CWF1 are taking up to 9 weeks.

I managed to get a UTR set up over the phone last year (further to an online application). If anyone manages to get through. We had a 64-8 in place which I assume helped.

Agreed property ones a fairly quick. SA1 submitted on 3rd Feb, UTR letter received by client on 17th Feb. Partnership ones always seem to take much longer.

You would think in these days of technology, you would be able to complete an online form (SA1 or CWF1) and get one immediately! Just again shows the incompetence of HMRC
