Construction Industry Scheme

If you work in the building trade you will be aware of the Construction Industry Scheme also known as CIS.  Under this scheme contractors deduct CIS from sub-contractors and pay it to HMRC on the Subcontractor’s behalf. This is tax that is paid in advance.

What is CIS?

Unless you are paid “Gross Status” you will have CIS tax deducted directly from your income.  As standard, the CIS tax deduction for verified sub-contractors is 20%, and 30% for those that are not verified.

Contractors and sub-contractors need to register for CIS with HMRC. Contractors then need to file a monthly CIS return, showing payments and deductions and provide their Subcontractors with CIS Payment Certificates.

At the year end the sub-contractor can offset the CIS suffered against their Self-Assessment Tax Return and in many instances the Subcontractor will receive a tax rebate.
