Companies House automatically notifies HMRC when a limited company or limited liability partnership is incorporated.

Soon after your business has been set up, you should receive a letter from HMRC at your registered office address advising you of the tax obligations and requirements. This letter will also contain your business Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR).

What is a UTR number?
A company’s UTR is a distinct 10-digit number that HMRC issues to all new limited companies.
These UTR numbers are used to identify companies for all tax-related purposes.


How do I get my UTR number?
Companies House will notify HMRC once your company has been incorporated.
Within 14 days of the company formation, HMRC will send a letter to your registered office address with your UTR number.

If you do not receive this letter you can request for another copy on the HMRC website by clicking the link below:
