Generally HMRC will issue your UTR within 3-4 weeks, it can be quicker but sometime it takes a little longer. It’s all dependant on how business HMRC are, they do say that it can take up to 8 weeks.
What do to if it doesn’t arrive
If your UTR number doesn’t arrive within time frame you will need to call HMRC on 0300 200 3310.
If Subcontractor Support applied for your UTR for you and you’ve signed up to the Yearly Accounting Service then you’ll be on our agent account access and we’ll call HMRC for you.
