No CIS Voucher

No CIS Voucher

Didn't find your answer?

Hi

One of my clients has lost his CIS voucher and so the CIS tax he has paid to date is unknown. He is having difficulty getting a copy voucher and we want to submit his tax return so he can get his refund as he will most likely be due a refund.

As we do not know, how much CIS he has paid and in light of the fact that he does not have any vouchers, how could i proceed to finish the tax return and how could i obtain the CIS paid to date from HMRC?

Just compare his invoices with what he received. The difference is the tax.

No invoices ? Oh dear. Afraid in that case you'd need to go cap in hand to HMRC, wait a long time for the client's refund and automatically alert HMRC to how poor your client's records are.

It would be hard to be sympathetic in that case but, on the other hand, if HMRC want to act as bankers for subcontractors' money, I see no reason why they are so secretive about how much they hold.

Agreed. If you have the invoices you should be easily able to compute the CIS tax. If the contractor is being obstinate then I usually find an email from us outlining their duties in respect of issuing CIS vouchers on a monthly basis usually does the trick!

Find out which customers stopped CIS and then it's 20/80 of the amounts in the bank assuming no materials.

Obviously in an ideal world you'd have vouchers to support but we don't live in an ideal world .

Why is he having difficulty getting a copy voucher - Is the contractor not paying HMRC ?
