CIS Verification issues

Cant seem to get past validation

Didn't find your answer?

I registered a client as a contractor, registered and received the paye references, sent authorisation and set them up on my tax account. They show up under PAYE but not CIS.

Im trying to validate their sub contractors payment status, but i keep getting the error that "your ID and password are not authorised to do this type of online filing for this employer reference" obviously without a verification number I cant submit the CIS Returns.

Im using moneysoft.

I feel like ive maybe missed a step somewhere and unsure where.

Can anyone advise?

CIS is not the same as PAYE
Are you the agent for CIS?

Good Point.

For some reason i was under the impression that sending online authorisation for the PAYE scheme would also include authorisation for CIS as well.

However its just occurred to me that there was no option to select CIS for online authorisation.

Then I had an idea to check out FBI-2, which does have the option to include CIS, so I'm going to send that off now as well.

Unfortunately, the client doesn't have a tax account otherwise they could have authorised me there instead.

There most certainly is the option to select cis for online authrisation within the old skool agent gateway. It's the option directly below paye on the request authorisation page.
"Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)"

I still do it oldschool and get authorised on the agent system
Agent system lists CIS as a separate authority to PAYE

I recently set up a new PAYE scheme online and one of the questions was "are you going to have sub contractors". When the PAYE ref was received it became clear that you had to apply separately for authorisation involving a code for each to be sent to client. Worked perfectly

Yep I realise that now and have since sent the authorisation for cis.
