UTR – Unique Taxpayer Reference represents the unique number associated with a certain taxpayer. Once you start your activity in the UK it is imperative to start paying taxes and you can only do this if you are registered with a unique taxpayer number. This is issued only by the HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and it is mandatory if you started your activity as self-employed or if you want to rent properties. The UTR is necessary to every self-employed because at the end of the fiscal year you will have to fill in an annual declaration to provide information about your incomes. If the HMRC considers that after you have completed the registering for the Self Assessment, you need to file an annual fiscal declaration, then they will send the UTR to your home.
