Verify subcontractor: overview: verification for contractors with multiple schemes

CISR51600 Action guide contents

Contractors with multiple schemes may wish to verify subcontractors for more than onescheme at the time of a single contact with HMRC.

The CIS system will make this possible without the contractor having to bere-authenticated by returning to the ‘Contractor Scheme Details’ window andselecting the next scheme within which they wish to verify a subcontractors registrationand payment status.

However, this will only work where the Contractor has gone through the Authenticationprocess using their NINO (National Insurance Number), or SA or COTAX UTR. If theContractor has gone through the Authentication process using their PAYE Accounts Officereference number, then it will be possible to undertake further actions in relation tothat particular Contractor scheme only.

The operator once finishing the verifications for the first Contractor scheme will have toreturn to the Identify Customer window and the Contractor will then need to go through theAuthentication process again in order to carry out (for example) verifications for anotherof their Contractor schemes.
