The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) is when contractors deduct money from a sub-contractor’s payments and pass it to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). The deductions count as advance payments towards the sub-contractor’s tax and National Insurance. One counts as a contractor and is eligible to this when you pay sub-contractors for construction work or your business doesn’t do construction work but you spend an average of more than £1 million a year on construction in any three-year period.
The type of work covered by the CIS are construction work to, a permanent or temporary building and civil engineering, like work on roads and bridges. For the purpose of CIS, construction work includes: preparing the site, demolition, building work, repairs, decorating, installation of systems like heating, lighting, power and cleaning the inside of buildings post-construction work.

I’ve been using KP Simpson for my annual account for a couple of years now and can’t thank them enough for the services they have given me. Brilliant advice from the start put into a language that anyone can understand. They are also very reasonably priced bearing in mind the exceptional service that is offered.
I have personally recommended their services to a number of my own personal clients and they have had nothing but praise for Andy and his team also. Top notch local service, nice work chap and chapettes.
