Construction Industry Scheme ("CIS")

The Construction Industry Scheme is a UK tax system which applies to contractors and sub-contractors in the construction industry. In certain circumstances, when payments are made by contractors to subcontractors, the contractor must deduct and withhold some tax. This deducted tax is then paid over to HMRC by the contractor, and is regarded as tax paid by the sub-contractor. CIS is therefore similar to PAYE for employers / employees.

When the sub-contractors make their Self-Assessment tax returns at the year end, they can count this deducted tax as already paid. This may result in either a balance of tax to be paid, or a refund. EAS can assist in all areas of CIS registration and management;

  • CIS Registration with HMRC
  • Contractor's Monthly CIS Return
  • CIS Tax suffered by a Self-Employed Sub-Contractor
  • CIS Tax suffered by a Limited Company Sub-Contractor


Every business wants to grow, become more profitable and maximise tax efficiency. EAS takes an integrated approach to your tax arrangements, including completing your tax returns, calculating liabilities and filing your returns to required deadlines.

Filing your returns correctly and on time is only part of your tax picture. We'll also look at other aspects, including your eligibility for tax reliefs and allowances and by working in this way, we'll help you to maximise tax efficiency.

For example, if you are operating as a sole trader, partnership or limited liability partnership, we can explore whether the tax benefits of incorporating as a limited liability company make this the right option for you. We can also look at the most tax-efficient approaches to remuneration for yourself or other members of your team.
