Hello, I'm also an European Citizen living in the Uk (have been working here for 5 years, I'm also registered as self employed on hmrc). I don't have a british passport nor a british drivers licence, but I do have a national insurance number, a tax reference number, proof of address, and do not need a work permit to work in the UK. Can someone contact me to confirm my location? I've only just registered and I'm looking forward to get started, but this issue is an absolute bummer and it's beyond discriminative (and barely legal I'd add! Never ever have i had an issue with proving my right to work in the UK!!) (

I have the same issue. I'm Spanish, I've been living in the UK for more than 5 years. My company is based in the UK and I'm unable to verify my location because I don't have a British passport or a UK driving license.
Can someone help me?
