Illegible references

If the UTR or AO reference shown on the return you are attempting to log is illegible or incorrect in any way (for example, an AO reference of 123PJ00123456 could be shown as123123456) enter ‘XXXX’ in the corresponding field.

This will trigger a ‘work item (WI)’. See CISR63080 for more information.
