Hi! I wanted to register as a freelancer in the UK and make a self-assessment. However, I cannot verify my identity with HMRC as I come from an EU country, have a right to work in the UK through pre-settled status, but don't have a UK-issued driver's licence or national insurance number. What can I do in this case as I can't use the services until I'm verified?

Hi maja0088,

You will need to register by post.

Please see the 'register by post' section:

Hi Admin 25, the form linked where it says 'Register for Self Assessment and Class 2 National Insurance by filling in a form on-screen then printing it off and posting it to HMRC' is broken / unavailable. The following page redirects to an error message. Do you know if there's any alternative option to complete the process for EU nationals not able to register online? https://public-online.hmrc.gov.uk/lc/content/xfaforms/profiles/forms.html?contentRoot=repository:///Applications/NICs_iForms/1.0/CWF1_20167&template=CWF1.xdp Thank you
