What is CIS Tax

CIS stands for Construction Industry Scheme. It’s a special HMRC tax scheme just for the construction industry. Under the scheme, contractors are required make CIS tax deductions from their subcontractors and pay this money to HMRC. When the subcontractor submits their CIS subcontractor tax return at the end of the tax year, most or all of their tax has already been paid. The standard CIS tax deduction is 20%, so if you’re a CIS subcontractor, you could have overpaid tax and be due a tax rebate.

self assessment tax returns

Doing your tax self assessment every year can be complicated and stressful, especially if you're in the Construction Industry. There are lots of HMRC rules and regulations to understand and, even when doing your tax return online, it's not clear how to complete each field correctly.

Unlike other tax return services, we have a dedicated team of Construction Industry experts who specialise in tax refunds so you can be confident we'll claim every penny of self employed tax relief you're entitled to. We can even look back four years to see if you could claim more.
