CISR42600 Action guide contents

Setting the ‘Inhibit Output’ signal

When a customer dies the CIS system automatically ‘inhibits’ the output of CIS Correspondence such as monthly returns. In so doing, an ‘inhibit output’ signal will be set on the CIS record.

However, there may be occasions when you will need to set the signal manually. For example, a customer has no fixed abode or in a complaint case.

Before you consider setting the signal manually, be sure to check whether or not an agent is authorised to receive correspondence. If so, is it still appropriate to inhibit output?

If it is and to set the signal go to CIS [Main menu], select [Update Customer] and check the ‘inhibit output’ box in the ‘Registration Details’ window.

Remember, once the signal is set, no automatic CIS correspondence will be issued.
