Each month, we release a set of new features into Clear Books Preview – an area of your account where you can start using the latest Clear Books updates before they are available on general release.

All Clear Books customers can choose to turn these new features on or off. Those features added in previous months have now been permanently added to all Clear Books accounts, and today the next batch have been added to Clear Books Preview.

What new features can I try this month?

The following updates relating to the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) will be available in Clear Books Preview for one month:

  • New CIS monthly return – We’ve added support for part payments which will show as ‘approved’ and bills adjusted by credit notes which will be shown as ‘credited’ on the return. Please note that this change is already enabled for you due to legal compliance, therefore you will be unable to stop previewing this feature.
  • Introducing the CIS suffered report – This report shows all of your transactions that had CIS deducted from your paid sales invoices.
