My accountant has told me that my CIS suffered on my bills had been submitted through PAYE in error by myself. I have no idea why this has happened. Can anyone shed any light on why this has happened? I did notice on my Gov gateway account a figure for the amount as a unallocated payment from me.
Hi there, @gcj1971.
Thanks for visiting the Community today. At the moment, you can only file your CIS return directly to HMRC. Instead, the program allows you to record your deductions suffered under CIS and submit the figures to HMRC.
Read through this guide for more information: Record Deductions Suffered under CIS.
You'll also want to check out this article to learn more about the process of filing CIS in QuickBooks Online.
I'm just a post away if you have any other concerns or further questions. Have a pleasant day ahead.
Yes, I’ve been manually submitting CIS deductions I’ve made to HMRC as they were continually rejected when submitting from QB. I’ve still got two rejected notifications on same period. I give up trying to submit after that. The issue is when I sent my PAYE payment report to accountant she noticed CIS figure included in it. She wanted to know why it was include in PAYE I have no idea how that figure has got there. I have to call HMRC to say there was an error. I’m trying to send a screenshot but QB won’t allow me as not valid extension.
This is what my accountant has told me. (I sent them my Employment Payment Record which I have attached).
CIS suffered by me has been put through Paye in error. My CIS suffered is deducted on my tax return, and not through Paye system. Therefore I should inform HMRC that an error of £18,606 has been made. I will then have to repay any Paye that would have been due.
Please can you let me know how this CIS suffered by me has ended up on my Employment Payment Record? I have no idea how. Thanks
It's possible to submit CIS suffered on the EPS of each of these systems, so if we can verify which one you're using we'll be able to advise on how to avoid this. Will you be looking to rollback and resubmit as a correction for the periods in which you have submitted CIS?
My accountant said I should not submit my CIS suffered through PAYE. I am not a limited company. She has submitted my CIS suffered with my tax return. I will need to turn this option off and correct this error. How do I do that?
Hi gcj1971 As EPS submissions are done with a cumulative figure we recommend that you submit another EPS with a zero amount. Select the cog/gear icon > account and settings > payroll > scroll to the bottom of the page and select CIS suffered > enter 0.00 in the amount deducted this tax year. The EPS should be submitted by the 19th of January.
This is a nightmare for me as I don’t know how to do this as I’m using QB and pay for subscription as I assumed it it would be much better than downloading free basic tools software. I don’t know how I’m going to correct this error easily. If I’d known that the option to submit CIS suffered is not really for Sole Traders and mainly for Limited companies this would not have happened. I wish now I’d stayed with my last paye software provider. I didn’t have any problems with them. The reason I changed to QB was that I could do all my business stuff all in one place. It was a mistake. I’m considering going back to using their software.
Hi gcj1971 We appreciate your frustrations however as your accountant has informed you the CIS suffered amount should be included in your self assessment form. You're not able to submit EPS's relating to a previous tax year on any payroll software as the deadline for EPS submissions to HMRC is the 19th of the following month, this is why we have advised you to use HMRC basic tools.
