What is a CIS Tax Refund?

CIS dictates that contractors deduct money from a subcontractor’s payments to be passed to HMRC. Those deductions are considered ‘advance payments’ towards the subcontractor’s tax and National Insurance.

You must be registered with the scheme in order for it to apply. Deductions are usually made at the standard rate of 20%. However, they can range from 0% (gross status) to 30% (higher rate), depending on your circumstances.

In many cases, too much tax is deducted from a subcontractor’s payment. Therefore, those individuals are often due a CIS tax refund. Overpayments in these instances can reach thousands of pounds – and it’s money that you’re entitled to!



When can I claim my CIS Tax Refund?

While you can only complete your CIS tax return at the beginning of the new tax year (April 6th), with Danbro, you can get started right now. With many people waiting on their rebate, either to pay off some bills or treat themselves to a holiday, most returns are conducted within the first month of the tax year.  

Refunds can be completed independently. However, plenty of people choose the hassle-free approach of hiring a specialist accountant to ensure their rebate is carried out quickly and accurately. With potentially thousands of pounds at stake, can you afford to miss out?

Do I need an Accountant?

Claiming your CIS tax refund can be a problematical process. Most companies make you print, sign and post your returns, complicating the process, and delaying your rebate.

The professionalism and experience of an accountancy firm, who specialise in CIS tax refunds, will help you maximise your money.
