Setting up Government Gateway Account
A Government Gateway user ID is a series of 12 digits that you can use to access the UK government’s secure online services including the HMRC portal.
Follow the steps below to create your Government Gateway Account:
Step 1. Go to HMRC’s login page
Visit HMRC’s login page by visiting this link
Step 2. Click the Sign in button
You can see it on the green button in the picture below:
Step 3. Create Sign-in Details
You can do this by clicking the “Create sign-in details” link shown below:
Step 4. Enter you email address
Input you email address once asked to do so.
Step 5. Confirm your email address
You will now be sent a confirmation code which you can use to confirm your email address.
Step 6. Enter your full name
A screen pops up asking you to input your full name.
Congratulations! You will now be issued with a User ID for your Government Gateway Account.
Since your User ID is a digital string, it is often confused with your UTR or Tax ID. If you wanted to register for Tax (such as self-assessment), please note that you have not yet registered.
You have only created your Government Gateway Account and will have to complete another step to register with HMRC for Tax.
