How do I turn off the CIS monthly reminders for the next 6 months?

Stop CIS monthly reminders2:04

"How do I turn off the CIS monthly reminders for the next 6 months?"

Sometimes your construction orders dry up, and you know that you won't be making any payments to your CIS subcontractors for the next six months.

To stop getting reminders to send a pay batch's CIS monthly to HMRC for six months:

  1. First, select the pay batch on: "Menu", then "Pay batches"
  2. Then on the "To-do" tab, tap the upcoming: "CIS monthly"
  3. Check the details are correct.
  4. In most cases, you'll be sending a "nil return", if there hasn't been any CIS payments in the month.
  5. Then check the last box on the form, where it says: "I don't anticipate paying subcontractors in the next six months."
  6. And when you're ready, tap: File with HMRC (at the bottom)
  7. Then: Yes ... file with HMRC
  8. It usually takes 15 to 20 seconds for HMRC to finish processing your CIS monthly.
  9. Because you've checked the last box on the form, once it's sent, you won't be reminded again for six months.
  10. Once HMRC responds, you'll see a green check to show it's been sent. You'll also see the confirmation receipt from HMRC.
  11. And finally, back on the "To-do" tab, you'll see that there's no more reminders to send the "CIS monthly" for the next six months.

Keep in mind that:

  • After six months, the "CIS monthly" automatically returns back onto your pay batch's "To-do" tab.
  • And, even though you won't be getting reminders, at any time you can still pay any of your CIS subcontractors as usual.
  • As soon as you do pay a CIS subcontractor, the "CIS monthly" automatically shows up again on your pay batch's "To-do" tab.

And that's it! That's all you need to do to turn off a pay batch's CIS monthly submission reminders for six months!
