Cancelling online

To deregister online, you’ll need your Government Gateway user ID and password.

Cancelling by post

Fill in the form online, print it and post it to HMRC. The address to send it to is in the form.

You’ll need to fill in the form fully before you can print it. You cannot save a partly completed form, so we suggest you gather all your information together before you begin to fill it in.

If you’re using an older browser, for example, Internet Explorer 8, you’ll need to update it or use a different browser. Find out more about browsers.
