Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)

"Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) training at Future Connect gives HMRC returns, payment & deduction statements of the contractors and subcontractors."

The Construction Industry Scheme is a tax plan that was introduced by the HMRC to make revenue from the Construction Industry.
