In the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), contractors are obliged to deduct money from subcontractors’ payments for HMRC. This is similar to PAYE, where deductions are like advance payments towards a subcontractor’s tax and national insurance. One Click Umbrella can help you focus on running your business with less red tape.
CIS Compliance with Less Bureaucracy
Under CIS, monthly returns for payments are required by HMRC. Like any tax system, there are penalties for late returns, ranging from a £100 to £3,000. It’s important to keep track of your CIS returns rather than getting an unwanted surprise later in the year.
When using CIS Umbrella, contractors can relax with help and advice from our personable staff. That leaves you with more time to focus on higher-earning activities.
