If you use the SimpleStep mode for the SA800, it will clearly guide you through entering all these details.
Note: You can't file a partnership return online if you don't have all of the individual UTRs. If you don't have a UTR for a partner (for example, they are overseas), then you must file by paper before 31 October 2016 for the tax year ending 5 April 2016.
Partners' individual return (SA100)
Each of the partners needs to report on their own individual tax return (SA100), their share of the profit/loss from the SA800 partnership ‘statement’. The SA100 is completed using the individual's UTR, then filed online with their own HMRC user ID and password. Within the SA100, the partnership section needs to be completed to ‘declare’ the share of income received from the partnership. For HMRC to identify the actual partnership, the partnership's UTR is entered into the partnership section on the SA100.
