Specialist Accountants for CIS industry in London


CIS  stands for “Construction Industry Scheme” and  is introduced by HMRC that dictates contractors to withhold tax for certain constructions contracts unless subcontractors are registered to receive the gross payments. Under the CIS scheme, contractors deduct money from a subcontractor’s payments and pass it to HMRC, which serve as advance payments towards the subcontractor’s tax and national insurance. This needs to be done every month, and contractors who fail to comply can face hefty fines. If you are in the construction industry, whether you are a subcontractor or a contractor, you have certain obligations to meet. You may be unsure of what you need to be doing to stay compliant, our qualified expert tax advisors and accountants are here to assist you in every stage of the compliance process.

How to register for CIS

In order to register for the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) you’ll need:

    • your legal business name – you can also give a trading name if it’s different to your business name
    • your National Insurance Number
    • Your unique taxpayer reference number (UTR)
    • your VAT registration number (in case you are VAT registered)

If you’re a subcontractor and a contractor (you pay subcontractors to do construction work), you’ll need to register for CIS as both.
