Just be aware that if you are matching this report to your EPS return from payroll - Payroll > RTI > File EPS, which always displays Year to Date (YTD) numbers from the start of the current tax year as per HMRC requirements, you would need to give the end date for the report as the end date of the tax period you are in.

Step 3.

You will see details of CIS deduction made, by invoice, by contractor, for the period you have run the report for. Summary of the deduction is shown on the top left-hand corner of the report.

Step 4.

Please note: The report cannot currently be submitted directly to HMRC, however, if you also use Open Payroll an EPS can be submitted to HMRC showing the YTD CIS deductions from payments.
