Register and Maintain Subcontractor: Update Subcontractors details - Company

CISR41600 Action Guide contents

This instruction explains how to amend information held on the subcontractor CIS record. You should ensure that you have the appropriate access rights in the Subcontractors Processing Office before you begin.

To access this functionality you must first successfully authenticate the customer, their representative or the source of the correspondence initiating the amendment, unless you are satisfied it is appropriate to bypass authentication (See CISR22680). Having selected ‘Update Customer’ from the CIS Main Menu, you will be taken to the Update Registration window.

Where you wish to change the company name, any such request must be made by the subcontractor in writing, the only exception to this is where the company contacts you to advise you that the spelling of their name is incorrect. Even so, in this situation you will need to pass this request to the COTAX processing office for the company, so that they can make the changes in COTAX, this information will then flow over to the CIS record.

See the Action Guide at CISR41640 for a full explanation of the entries that can be made to Update the Subcontractors details for a Company.
