CIS Tax Refund: What Can I Claim?

But, what is CIS; how do CIS tax returns work; and are you eligible for a CIS tax refund? Get the answers you need, below…

What is CIS?

The Construction Industry Scheme, or CIS, is a tax deduction scheme involving contractors and subcontractors from the construction industry. Under CIS, a contractor will deduct money from a subcontractor’s pay and send it to HMRC. The money’s considered as an ‘advance payment towards the subcontractor’s tax’.

All contractors who pay subcontractors for construction work in the UK must register for CIS. Whilst subcontractors do not have to register for CIS by law, deductions will get taken at a higher rate if they choose not to. Furthermore, CIS does not apply to payments made to PAYE employees working in the construction industry.

Am I eligible for a CIS tax refund?

If you’re a subcontractor, and you’ve paid too much tax, you could get a CIS tax refund. As a subcontractor, you’re responsible for paying the correct amount of tax for your small business – regardless of whether you’re registered with CIS.

How do I get my CIS tax back?

If you’ve had too much tax deducted under CIS, you could be entitled to get some of your CIS tax back. To make sure you get your CIS tax refund promptly, you need a specialist provider to save you time, reduce stress, and ensure compliance.
