Record Deductions Suffered under CIS in QuickBooks Online

SOLVEDby QuickBooksQuickBooks Online Payroll45Updated June 15, 2022

QuickBooks Online Standard Payroll allows you to record your deductions suffered under CIS and submit the figures to HMRC. Before you start recording these, make sure that CIS in turned on in your QuickBooks.

How to record CIS suffered:

  1. In QuickBooks Online Standard Payroll, go to Payroll, select Overview (Take me there), then select Settings under Shortcuts to enter CIS Suffered.
    • Note: You can also enter CIS suffered in the Account and Settings menu by selecting the gear icon > Payroll > CIS Suffered.
  2. On the CIS deductions panel, enter the current CIS deductions for the year to date in the Amount deducted box. You can select Fetch CIS suffered and we'll collect the amount recorded in Quickbooks Online.
  3. The Date for deduction calculation can be set if you wish you record CIS suffered deductions for a different tax period. It defaults to today’s date, which is the current tax period.
  4. Select Save record. This will create the CIS suffered in your next EPS and will be ready for submission. You can see all your Previous CIS records from here too.

How to update CIS and see previous records

To update CIS suffered, go to Account and settings > Payroll and then CIS suffered.

To see previous records, select See previous CIS records.

Moving to QuickBooks from another payroll software

If you move your payroll from other software to Quickbooks Online Standard Payroll, and have previously recorded CIS suffered deductions, then you will need to manually add these past CIS suffered entries.

To enter these past CIS deductions:

  1. In QuickBooks Online Standard Payroll, select Payroll on the left nav under Account and settings to enter CIS Suffered.
  2. On the CIS deductions panel, change the Date for deduction Calculation to April 30th and enter the total amount deducted in April into the Amount Deducted box.
  3. Select Save and CIS suffered is created in your next EPS ready for submission.
  4. Repeat this process for each tax period of the current tax year, up to the current tax period. Make sure that you enter the cumulative year to date CIS deduction amount each time. Your P32 Report will update each Tax Period with the CIS Suffered amount.
  5. Next, go to Taxes and select Payroll tax (Take me there). You will see an EPS created for each past period that you submitted above. If you recently submitted an EPS to reclaim CIS Suffered in your previous payroll software, you'll now need to delete the duplicate EPS in QuickBooks Online Standard Payroll.
  6. To do this, select the EPS that is not required to view more information.
  7. Select the Trash icon to delete this submission.
  8. Repeat this process for all other EPS that aren't required.
