Hello, not sure how to sort it… so am very grateful for you’re help
Expert:  [email protected] replied 17 days ago.

This is quite an odd issue. Your personal UTR is only issued when you state your NINO. After HMRC cross-checks your biodata, date of birth, etc only then a UTR is issued.

In order to resolve this issue, you will need to contact the technical helpline of HMRC on 

0300(###) ###-####

ID issues are very critical therefore HMRC will have to investigate it for correction.

Once your details are corrected, you may apply for any tax rebates. You have upto 4 years to make a tax refund claim
