What is the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)?

Under the Construction Industry Scheme contractors deduct money from subcontractor payments and pass it to HMRC as advanced payment towards the subcontractor’s income tax and National Insurance Contributions (NICs).

The CIS is subject to close monitoring from HMRC with a number of dedicated Construction Industry teams situated around the country.
