Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) Services for Contractors

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) is a vital aspect of the UK construction industry, aimed at regulating payments made to subcontractors. Compliance with CIS regulations is crucial for contractors to avoid penalties and ensure smooth operations. At our firm, we offer comprehensive CIS services tailored specifically for contractors, providing expert guidance and support to navigate the complexities of the scheme.


What is the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)?


The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) is a tax deduction scheme implemented by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) within the construction industry. It requires contractors to deduct money from subcontractors' payments for the HMRC, which counts as advance payments towards the subcontractor's tax and National Insurance contributions.


How Our Firm Can Help Contractors with CIS:


1. CIS Registration Assistance:

We assist contractors in registering for the CIS scheme, ensuring compliance with HMRC requirements and providing guidance on the registration process.

2. Subcontractor Verification:

We help contractors verify the employment status of subcontractors and ensure that they are registered with HMRC before making any payments.

3. CIS Compliance:

Our team ensures that contractors comply with all CIS regulations, including timely submission of CIS returns, accurate record-keeping, and adherence to payment and deduction rules.

4. Tax Deduction Management:

We manage the tax deduction process on behalf of contractors, accurately calculating and deducting the correct amount of tax from subcontractors' payments in accordance with CIS regulations.

5. CIS Return Preparation and Filing:

Our experts prepare and file CIS returns on behalf of contractors, ensuring that all necessary information is submitted to HMRC accurately and on time.

6. HMRC Liaison:

We act as a liaison between contractors and HMRC, handling any communication, enquiries, or disputes related to CIS compliance on behalf of our clients.

7. CIS Advice and Guidance:

We provide contractors with comprehensive advice and guidance on all aspects of CIS compliance, including updates on changes to legislation, best practices, and strategies to minimize risks and maximize efficiency.

8. Penalty Mitigation:

In the event of any CIS penalties or issues, we help contractors navigate the process, mitigate penalties, and ensure compliance moving forward.
