When HMRC confirm receipt of an online filing, they only refer to the unique tax reference number. I find this very inconvenient because I don't have a a ready list of UTRs to refer to. Therefore, I have to try and recall whose returns I have filed and then find their UTR to confirm that I can match the email with the correct client. Surely it wouldn't take much for HMRC to use names as well as UTR's for their "customers"?
Maybe accountingweb could make this suggestion to HMRC (if there is an incentive award - I claim it!").
It would also be useful if software suppliers could also provide a file within their packages which one could download into Excel so that one could then resort the list by UTR number. At least that would make cross-referencing a little easier.
