Any business can use a Business Tax Dashboard but you will need to have enrolled for HMRC Online Services before you can set one up. You do this through the HMRC website. You have to be enrolled under the same account (User ID) for each tax you want to include in your dashboard.
If you have enrolled for Corporation Tax and Self Assessment under the same account you will only be able to see your Corporation Tax position on the dashboard. You can still view your Self Assessment tax position separately from the 'At a glance’ page within the Self Assessment online service.

The option to set up and use a dashboard isn't currently available to agents. Agents can still view their client’s tax position for Corporation Tax and Self Assessment using the relevant online service. HMRC are looking to provide an agent dashboard, and access to view their client’s PAYE for employers and VAT tax position, at a later date.
When you set up a Business Tax Dashboard you are the administrator for that service. If you want other people in your business to use the dashboard you need to give them administrator access. This gives them the same level of access as you to the account. You can set up administrators by visiting the Government Gateway website, selecting the 'Manage Administrators' link and following the on-screen instructions.
You can set up a Business Tax Dashboard from the 'Your HMRC services' page. To do this you need to log in with your User ID and password then follow the on-screen instructions to add a Business Tax Dashboard.
You can only set up a Business Tax Dashboard from a login (User ID) that gives access to a Corporation Tax or Self Assessment online service.To get the full benefit of a dashboard you need to have your business related taxes enrolled under the same User ID. If you have set up different User IDs for each HMRC online service you can move the relevant online services to one account.

If the service you've added needs to be activated before you can use it HMRC will send you a new activation code.
