HMRC Issues CDS Error Code Guidance

BIFA's Policy team has been provided two documents helping Members navigate any error codes they come across on CDS.

To assist with better understanding of CDS error codes, HMRC has re-shared some error guidance documentation that was produced and circulated in July 2021:

CDS Error Code Guidance (opens in new window)

CDS Data Element Error Codes List (opens in new window)

These documents cover:

  • Reading and understanding the Error Message
  • Error Code Reference Numbers
  • Description of Error
  • Location of the error
  • Identifying the problem
  • Correcting the error
  • Cross-field validation errors

These documents can be found on our dedicated section 'Transitioning to CDS', along with lots of other useful resources, videos, guidelines etc. (link opens in new window)
