I need help!!

I had a small business in the past which I had since closed a few years ago - I received a government gateway ID and a UTR and everything had run smoothly when it was running.

I unregistered as self employed and I was no longer a business for a few years now.

I have now started a new business and quickly reached the £1000 threshold- I've logged into business gateway using my Gateway ID and UTR, its brought me to the business tax page like normal but I can not work out how you register as self employed again.

I have made this money from May this year to now so have past the last tax year.

Do I create a new UTR?
Is there a link im missing? 
I clicked a link and it had only shown options to describe myself as a trust or partnership - which I'm not, I am just a sole trader.

Any help would be appreciated
