Mandatory online filing of CIS returns and verifications
HMRC have brought out new rules regarding submitting CIS. Please read below their recent article:
Over 85% of contractors and their authorised agents are already sending us their CIS returns online, but from April 2016 everyone will have to use the online service. HMRC will no longer be accepting any paper forms from that date.
To increase filing accuracy, this change will see the introduction of online amendments, online messaging and alerts.
We’re also improving the online verification service for you, as from April 2017 everyone will also have to use the online service, HMRC will no longer accept telephone verifications from that date.
For contractors and agents currently sending paper returns, you’ll need to register for HMRC’s online services as an ‘Organisation’ ahead of the April 2016 deadline. To register online you’ll need your HMRC employer reference and Accounts Office (AO) reference.
If you prefer to use commercial software, please find more information about the changes on the GOV.UK website.
If you’re one of the 80% already using our online services, you don’t need to do anything for now. Just check for updates on the CIS web pages over the next few months.
But if you’re not, act now by registering for our online services today.
If you need help with your CIS returns speak to our Payroll Department today.
