Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)

The Construction Industry Scheme, also known as CIS, is a tax plan that was introduced by the HMRC to make revenue from the Construction Industry. Contractors registered under the CIS scheme need to deduct 20% to 30% tax from the subcontractors depending on the registration status for CIS. This scheme minimizes tax evasion in the construction industry.

Pratical CIS Training :

The candidates will receive practical training on how to manage the typical issues that they will encounter with subcontractors and also deal with the administration. There are two sessions presented which look at live case studies and activities relating to the scheme that strengthens the learning and upgrades your knowledge.
