On 24th January I have send by post the CWF1 registering for Self Employment form, I have confirmation that was delivered on 25th early in the morning, passed already almost one month and still I did not receive my UTR number and in the website said that take about 10 days to arrive. Any number where I can ring for ask about it? TIA

10 working days is our normal timescale, however its currently longer than that.

If received on 25/01/2022 you can expect a reply by 01/03/2022.

Thank you.

Yeah, I can see is a bit longer...such us 30 days longer at least. May be helpful to update the timescale to something more near the reality, or advise about the delays and people can look for another work opportunity to feed their family . Anyway, thanks for your answer.

Hey Vanesella, Just to give you a more accurate idea of when to expect it, it took 4 months for me to receive my UTR. I sent it September 2021 and received it January 2022 around the same time in the month. I called them after a month to ask about it and was told they have delays and a more realistic timeframe was 8 weeks, but it turned out to be 4 months.
