Obtaining a Government Gateway ID
Obtaining a Government Gateway ID is a straightforward process. Visit gateway.gov.uk to register. You will need to select if you are representing:

This is important, ensure that you keep it in a safe place. If you do need help registering there is a dedicated help section on CTS website, allowing you to telephone the relevant department.
Enrolling for the (CTS) online service
Once you have obtained the Government Gateway ID, you now need to Enrol for the CTS service online.
