"How do I change the details of an existing CIS subcontractor?"

The most common reason to remove a CIS verification is changing a person from a sole-trader to a company.

To remove a person's existing CIS verification, and then re-verify them with some of their details changed. For example, changing them to a company:

  1. First, select the person on: "Menu", then "People"
  2. Then tap: "Tax", then "Tax settings"
  3. And scroll down to the purple check.
  4. Next, hover your mouse over the purple check, and tap the trash can image, and then tap: Yes ... remove
  5. Once it's removed, all their previous verification details are temporarily hidden. You can now select the CIS subcontractor type again.
  6. Next, set "Previously verified". In the example, you can set it to: "No"
  7. And enter the person's company UTR, company name, and registration number.
  8. Then tap Save to re-verify them with HMRC.
  9. It usually takes 15 to 20 seconds for HMRC to finish processing your verification request.
  10. Included in the result from HMRC is their new: "CIS verification reference number"
  11. Their new number can be used by them while working with your company. It can also be used by them while working as a CIS subcontractor for any other company.
  12. Verifying a CIS subcontractor sets the deduction rate to 20% if the person (or company) is registered with HMRC, or 30% if not registered.
  13. And finally, once finished, you'll see the purple check. You'll also see a blue highlight around their new CIS verification reference number, showing that their verification has been completed.

And that's it! That's all you need to do to change a CIS subcontractor's details!
