Hi ,I'm not living in UK, I have property in UK and I have income from it since 2022,7,15, I want to register the NRL and get the UTR No. for tax return, I find the process in the website, Relevant information tells me there is a form NRL1 needs to be filled out and mailed, and I have post it to you in last week, but my friend tall me , it's also have another form SA1 need to post , I find the form in , and find it need to post to the other adress, because it is very expensive to mail to England, I want to know do I have to mail this form to the UK? Do I mail it after my NRL registration is completed or can I mail it immediately, thx

Form NRL1, is used to request that your rental income is paid without deduction of UK tax, if you are an an individual landlord of
a UK property and normally live outside the UK. 

As part of processing this form, we would set up a self assessment record for you, where one did not exist before. 

For this reason, you would not need to complete SA1 as well .

Thank you.

Hi, I have the same confusion. So, Is that means that after my first application for NRL1, the UTR will automatically be mailed to me as I do not have one before and do not need to complete SA1 as your reply. Looking forward to your reply and many thanks!

Yes, when a form NRL1 is submitted, HMRC sets up an SA record as part of the process.
ou do not therefore have to complete an SA1. 

Thank you.

Hi,Ms / Mr Thanks for your reply. Now I know I only have to fill NRL1. And I also want to make sure that after I mailed NRL1 to HMRC, How long will I got my NRL number? Will the UTR number mailed to me at the same time when I got my NRL number? Thank you.

HMRC will write to you to advise your Unique Taxpayer Reference number (UTR) once you are accepted as a non resident landlord.  

You will be required to complete a Self Assessmen Tax return every year.  

We do have a backlog of post, so it could be several months before you receive a reply.

Thank you.
