So I've decided to start selling some bits on eBay to make some extra cash so I've signed up to a bulk order company. You can only buy from them if you are a registered limited company or sole trader. They are asking for my company name and registration number (is this just my name and self assessment urn)? But they are also asking me to upload business docs such as UTR registration and I don't know what this is. I am registered for tax self assessment do I need to do something different for sole trader? Checked in HMRC and every time I say I did a tax return last year they say I don't need to do anything else. So am I a sole trader and if so how do I prove it?
