How to Create your Government Gateway Account?

Setting up Government Gateway Account

A Government Gateway user ID is a series of 12 digits that you can use to access the UK government’s secure online services including the HMRC portal.

Follow the steps below to create your Government Gateway Account:


Step 1. Go to HMRC’s Login Page

Visit HMRC’s login page by visiting this link

Step 2. Click the Sign in button

You can see it on the green button in the picture below:


Step 3. Create Sign-in Details

Step 4. Enter your email address

Input your email address once asked to do so.


Step 5. Confirm your email address

You will now be sent a confirmation code which you can use to confirm your email address.



Step 6. Enter your full name


Step 7. Receive your User ID for your Government Gateway Account

Congratulations! You will now be issued a User ID for your Government Gateway Account.



Since your User ID is a digital string, it is often confused with your UTR or Tax ID. If you wanted to register for Tax (such as self-assessment), please note that you have not yet registered.

You have only created your Government Gateway Account and will have to complete another step to register with HMRC for Tax.
