Under the Construction Industry Scheme, contractors deduct money from a subcontractor’s payments and pass it on to HMRC.
The deductions count as advance payments towards the subcontractor’s tax and National Insurance.
If you’re a contractor;
You will need to register as a contractor with HMRC if you pay subcontractors to do construction work.
This applies to sole traders, limited companies and partnerships.
You will need to register before you take on your first subcontractor. As part of your duties you will need to check that your subcontractors are registered for CIS. We can also check a subcontractors CIS status online via our payroll system.
Monthly returns need to be filed with HMRC even if no subcontractors have been paid that month. There are £100 fines for each missed CIS return not filed.
Which is where we come in handy, we can file those returns for you, and keep track of what tax you owe.
Any money paid to HMRC is shown on your payroll tax summary that we will provide.

We like to build a close and honest relationship with our clients in which we can inspire, challenge and support you to achieve your goals. We provide the best advice and friendly environment for you to discuss and consider your options.
