I am setting up as self employed and need to request agent codes for self assessment and corporation tax. I sent a recorded letter on 10th December but have heard nothing back - not sure if no news means a rejection or a delay due to Christmas....
The only reason for my rejection I can see is I have put the wrong UTR number in. I used my personal UTR that is used for my own online tax return. I understand I need to set up a separate agent services account with HMRC but I haven't done this as I thought I needed the codes first. Have I done things the wrong way round? Is there another UTR you get when you set up an online agent services account and is this what I should have used.
I find it ridiculous that there is no phone number to call to find out what is happening to my application!
