If you operate in the Construction Industry, then the chances are that you will need to register under the CIS scheme as either a contractor or subcontractor. Contact
In basic terms, if you are in business and you are going to pay anyone in the construction industry, then before you pay them you must check their tax status with HMRC and deduct tax at a rate set by HMRC from any payments before you make them.
Similarly, if you are a subcontractor and you want to get paid by another business in the Construction Industry, then you must be registered with HMRC.
HMRC impose severe penalties including financial penalties and even criminal prosecutions on any individual that does not comply with the rules.
We can explain the rules to you and get you registered as either a contractor or sub-contractor.
