HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) charge penalties for all CIS returns not received by the 19th of every month.

Any return not received from contractors by the due date will be liable to a fixed penalty of £100 and a further penalty for every additional month that the return remains outstanding.

Up to 43% of contractors are likely to be fined for:

  • not informing HMRC of their nil returns
  • not validating the status of subcontractors
  • late monthly returns
