I can see how they might feel they need it for their records, but should I be handing my UTR over when HMRC has stipulated it is confidential and not to be given to other people.
Forgive me if this is not the correct place for this question, but it seemed the best place to start, as Self Assessment uses the UTR.
I have been asked to supply my UTR to a person employing me as a freelancer, as proof of self-employment. However, as anyone who has one would know (unless things have changed recently), HMRC says your UTR is confidential and should not be given to anyone else, it is only to be used when contacting HMRC.
Has anyone else had this? And what have they done in the circumstances.
