Viewing CIS end of year totals
From the CIS Main Menu, select View Customer.
You will see the Scheme Details window, from the top of this window, select EOY Totals tab.
At the top of the screen you will see:
- Return Periods not finalised
- Return Exemption Periods
- Scheme movements.
These will be activated when you select a tax year (as explained below).
Tax Year Totals Panel
Below these signals you will see the ‘Tax Year Totals Panel’. This lists each tax year end and the:
- Tax Year End
- Payments - the total amount of CIS payments made by the scheme based on returns received for the tax year
- Materials - the total material costs paid to subcontractors by the scheme based on returns for the tax year
- Deductions - the total deductions made from subcontractors by the scheme based on returns for the tax year
- EOY Status - the current status of the EOY figure, Full, Inactive or Provisional
- Periods not finalised - ‘Yes’ indicates there are un-finalised return months
- Return Exemption Periods - ‘Yes’ indicates that an exemption is set.
Tax year details
Select a tax year line from the list box and you will see
- Return Periods Not Finalised are shown at the top of the screen.
This is a list of all the periods that are causing the final EOY figure to retain its ‘provisional’ status. If one or more return periods are not finalised (outstanding returns, logged but not captured returns or exceptions that still need to be worked by the CIS Team in Newcastle).
Note: the final EOY status figure can be ‘provisional’ even if no periods are displayed here. This could occur when there has been a scheme merger in the year and one of the ‘merged from’ schemes has provisional periods. In this instance you would need to review the records of the ‘merged from’ scheme to see which periods were unresolved.
- Return Exemption Periods are shown at the top of the screen.
This gives a list of any return periods in that year that are currently marked as ‘exempt’.
Note: If there has been a scheme merger in the year and one of the ‘merged from’ schemes has exempt periods this will not be reflected in this field. You would need to review the records of the ‘merged from’ scheme to see which periods have exemptions set in that year.
- Scheme Movements are shown at the top of the screen.
This provides a list of the schemes that have been merged into the current scheme in that tax year.

You will also see that the ‘EOY History’ button has been enabled. You can select this button to see:
