To access HMRC Online Services and manage various tax-related tasks digitally, you can register and log in through the official HMRC website. This portal provides a comprehensive suite of tools for individuals, businesses, and agents to submit tax returns, check tax accounts, make payments, and more. Whether you need to file a Self Assessment tax return, register as self-employed, or access your personal tax account, HMRC Online Services simplifies these processes by offering a secure, user-friendly online platform.

To start using HMRC Online Services, you'll need to prove your identity, which can be done via the Government Gateway or GOV.UK Verify. Once your identity is verified, you'll gain access to a range of services tailored to your tax requirements. For those filing a Self Assessment tax return for the first time, obtaining a Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) is essential, which you can also do through the HMRC website.
