Further information on HMRC CIS
If you are a self employed construction worker and you have your tax stopped at source by the contractor you will have to complete a self assessment tax return under the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS). This scheme is for contractors and subcontractors. CIS sets out rules for how payments to subcontractors for construction work should be handled by contractors in the construction industry. Under the rules of CIS, you are a contractor if you run a business that employs subcontractors for construction operation.
Those working in the construction industry are issued with a CIS Statement of Payment weekly or monthly. This is a certificate of pay showing your income and tax paid on those earnings.
People under the CIS have a standard amount of tax that they have to pay and currently it is 20%. This means that 20p for every £1 you earn is automatically deducted from your gross earnings. You must submit your annual CIS return to reclaim overpayment in tax. The average amount you can reclaim is £1500. It is vital that people under the CIS complete an annual self assessment tax return.

CIS Deadline Date
A date to look forward to if you are a subcontractor in HMRC CIS (Construction Industry Scheme) is April 6th. This is the day you can apply to HMRC for your tax rebate for the previous year. Our service helps in the following ways.
Are you self employed?
You will have had tax deducted at source under CIS, this is normally 20%. Tax for self employed people is based upon your net profit, therefore your tax self assessment is based upon income minus expenses. You also have your personal allowances to take into consideration before you pay tax. The personal allowance for 2011/2012 is £7475 & 2012/13 it is £8100. Any self employed person with reasonable expenses and income will almost certainly be due a rebate.
Are you a limited company?
Because companies pay corporation tax on profits, most businesses (without their own subcontractors) can claim back all tax paid under CIS as a trading expense. Subsequently the CIS rebate goes towards the profits of the company. Dividends can then be taken to reduce the personal tax liability.
Are you employed on PAYE?
Most employed people are eligible to tax rebates. In the circumstances of employed people in the construction industry under CIS tax, employees seldom work in one place, regularly use their own tools and incur other expenses in the line of their employment.
Most if not all of these expenses can be claimed back. Therefore rebates for employed people can be substantial. Please call us and we can advise on tax rebates due.
