Accountants for CIS Self employed or Sole traders
Under the Construction Industry Scheme, if you are a subcontractor you will need to register with HMRC as a CIS sole trader. Your CIS contractor will check your registration with HMRC and if verified will deduct 20% of tax from your invoices and will pay this to HMRC on behalf of you. If you are not a registered CIS subcontractor, your contractor will deduct 30% of your invoices.
As a CIS sole trader, you will be required to submit your annual self assessment tax return by 31 January following the end of the tax year. We are specialist CIS tax return accountants who can help you prepare and submit your CIS self assessment tax return ensuring that you claim all your legitimate expenses, and that any CIS refund is directly credited into your bank account.
If you would like to work in the Construction Industry as a CIS self employed/sole trader, the first step would be to register yourself with HMRC as a sole trader working in the Construction Industry Scheme.
Once you are a registered CIS subcontractor, any contractor (normally a CIS contractor company) who would hire you will deduct 20% tax from the gross value of your invoice. However, if you are not a registered CIS self employed contractor, they will be required to deduct 30% tax from your gross invoice.
CIS sole traders are required to file their self-assessment tax returns every year before 31 January following the end of the tax year. The tax year for CIS sole traders end on 5 April every year. For example, for the tax year ended 5 April 2018, CIS sole traders must submit their tax returns by 31 January 2019. There are penalties for the late filing of the returns.

Accountants for CIS Limited Companies

If you are a contractor within the construction industry then you will have to submit monthly CIS returns before the 19th of each month. A CIS return lets HMRC know that how much CIS tax you have deducted from your subcontractors and therefore how much you owe to them. We are specialist CIS contractor accountants who can help you prepare and submit your monthly CIS returns ensuring that you are compliant with HMRC and provide your CIS subcontractors their CIS vouchers and deduction statements throughout the year.
If you would like to work in the construction industry through a limited company, the first step would be to register a limited company with Companies House.
