Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)

As experts in providing accountancy services to construction-based businesses, we work with a range of SMEs and family-owned and run businesses to provide advice on the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS).

Building contractors and subcontractors in mainstream construction work or any organisation that has a high annual spend on construction (typically more than £1 million per year) may fall under the Construction Industry Scheme. The scheme is a set of rules which apply to the handling of payments made by contractors to subcontractors for the work.

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) can apply to all types of businesses that work in the construction industry in the UK and can include self-employed individuals working as sole traders, partnerships, companies, and limited liability partnerships.

If you work within this industry, get in touch to learn how we can help you through our range of services designed for the Construction Industry Scheme.

Types of construction work covered by the CIS include:

  • Site preparation
  • General construction (bricklaying, roofing, plastering etc)
  • Alterations and extensions
  • Repairs and refurbishment
  • Decorating
  • Dismantling work
