We have dedicated services for the construction industry and assist contractors and sub-contractors with construction industry scheme (CIS). Under CIS, contractors deduct money from the amount payable to a subcontractor and pass it to HMRC. This deduction is considered as advance payment towards a subcontractor's National Insurance (NI) and tax. Contractors must register for the scheme. CIS covers most construction work – building a permanent or temporary structure or civil engineering work which includes constructing roads and bridges. We help contractors with the registration process and make sure that they do not register incorrectly. Contractors do have to register if there only perform the following activities:
- architecture and survey work
- carpet fitting
- material delivery
- make material used in construction industry including plant and machinery
- scaffolding hire (with no labour)
- perform other activities on the construction sites which do not form part of the core construction activities such as running a canteen.
