|CISR51600||Action guide contents|
Contractors with multiple schemes may wish to verify
subcontractors for more than one scheme at the time of a single
contact with HMRC.
The CIS system will make this possible without the contractor having to be re-authenticated by returning to the ‘Contractor Scheme Details’ window and selecting the next scheme within which they wish to verify a subcontractors registration and payment status.
However, this will only work where the Contractor has gone through the Authentication process using their NINO (National Insurance Number), or SA or COTAX UTR. If the Contractor has gone through the Authentication process using their PAYE Accounts Office reference number, then it will be possible to undertake further actions in relation to that particular Contractor scheme only.
The operator once finishing the verifications for the first Contractor scheme will have to return to the Identify Customer window and the Contractor will then need to go through the Authentication process again in order to carry out (for example) verifications for another of their Contractor schemes.
