UTR format error

11/04/2019 14:16:30
I am trying to register with HMRC for PAYE. When I enter my UTR it says that I have entered it in the wrong format. I have cleared cookies, restarted my computer, tried in Chrome and Edge, tried on a different computer, all with the same result.
HMRC online helpline is inoperative at all times of the day, just says that they're busy and can't answer.
Can anyone help?

Please explain to me what I'm doing wrong to be getting fines of HMRC every month ? I have no idea what it's for and don't want to run a business anymore. ? I have only been in business for 8 months and am struggling to understand why your being so petty ??

Hi,

Thanks for your question.

We’re unable to confirm the reason as to why you continue to receive fines/penalties from HMRC through this forum as we don’t have access to your record.

You will need to contact HMRC direct by telephone so that your record can be accessed.

Please refer to the following link:
