How do I know if I can register for the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)?

Operating via CIS can be a good, efficient way to work for those in the construction industry.

However, we need to ensure that you’re operating via this scheme compliantly.

Our advisers will ask you some questions which will help determine if this is the best route for you. We need to ensure that your role falls within HMRC’s definition of the Construction Industry Scheme and that you have a registered valid UTR number.

HMRC’s definition of the Construction Industry Scheme seeks to determine whether you are ‘genuinely’ self-employed. Our series of questions will determine if your role would be classed as self-employed, as defined by HMRC and therefore eligible for CIS.
