What does UTR stand for?

Unique Tax Reference (UTR) is a ten-digit code that was created by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to identify all taxpayers in the UK, including those who self-assess. It’s an important tool of the tax system, used to manage records and process information quickly.

Every UTR number is unique and provides a permanent identification of an individual’s income tax liabilities.

It’s essential for carrying out the administrative processes related to tax, such as filing tax returns or working out how much needs to be paid from certain benefits or investments. Therefore, having a UTR number can be invaluable for anyone who has financial dealings with HMRC.
