As there's no forum for Technical issues, and I am an employee, I'll ask here.
Every time I try to log in to the system, I am getting refused and locked out.
NI Number: Correct.
Gateway ID: Correct.
Your system STILL keeps saying my details are wrong.
Why is this?
Please don't reply with the stock "you cannot use this service"
I am a UK citizen, born here, never worked outside the UK.

OK, a little background first. I plan on setting up a new business as sole trader, but need to have confirmation that I trade under a business name to be able to get the Merchant Account I need for online payments.
When I register as Sole Trader using a business name, is the business name shown on the HMRC confirmation letter sent once I register?
I am aware that HRC does not actually register a formal business name for me.
I mean along the lines of "[personal name] trading as [business name]" as opposed to a registered Ltd Company.
