  • Delay receiving the UTR number for self assessment

    Good afternoon, I filled almost a month ago (17/01/2022) the "CWF1 registering for Self Employment form" and I sent it by post to obtain the UTR number for the self assessment return, as I can't use the online service because I am unable to verify myself online. In the HMRC webpage ( it says that I should receive the UTR number within the next 10 working days, but I haven't received it yet. Is it normal? How long it takes for the application to be processed? Thank you
