Online filing of CIS returns is mandatory from April 2016

Not only is online filing of CIS returns mandatory from April 2016 but verifications must also be filed online from April 2017. Over 85% of contractors and their authorised agents are already sending HMRC 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.

In addition, from April 2017, everyone will also have to use the online service for verifications. Contractors and agents currently sending paper returns will need to register for HMRC’s online services as an ‘Organisation’ ahead of the April 2016 deadline: you’ll need your HMRC Employer Reference and Accounts Office (AO) reference to be able to do this.
