How To Approach Construction Industry Scheme

The CIS is basically a Construction Industry Scheme that applies to the construction as well as construction-related jobs including the decoration, renovation and repairs, demolition and alterations. This particular scheme is a pay-as-you-go approach to tax as well as national insurance. The general PAYE rules are easy to understand but when it comes to the CIS the PAYE rules are quite complicated. Here there is a major difference of tax rules for the contractors, the registered sub-contractors and the non-registered sub-contractors. Brain Payroll is a payment management software that makes things easy for the contractors as well as the sub-contractors at the time of payment, deductions of tax and monthly reporting.

The reporting requirements of CIS for contractors:

The contractors being a responsible person of the team has to make monthly online reporting to the HMRC for the following duties:

  • Verification process and its update
  • Employment status of sub-contractors
  • Detail of payments made to all the sub-contractors
  • Detailing of tax deductions from the payment done to the sub-contractors
  • Annual CIS deduction statement

Penalties for late returns:

The CIS includes a tough time for the contractors at the time of late returns. The HMRC triggers penalties for late returns, which is quite expensive. To avoid the late return penalties, the contractor can easily switch over to the payroll management software that does the tasks on time and through an automated mode.
Hence, we can say that the contractor truly has to deal with a boredom of handling various payment and tax deduction tasks simultaneously while carrying out the on-site duties and responsibilities. Brain Payroll makes the thing easier for the contractor by calculating things online and automating the payment and tax deductions of the sub-contractors. The reporting becomes an easy job for the contractor, which brings him life and cheer after a day’s hard work.
