Construction Industry Schemes!

CIS - Construction Industry Scheme

The new law of the Construction Industry Scheme that was implemented on the 6th April 2007. The key changes include the following:

Cards and Certificates will be replaced by a 'verification' service to confirm whether a subcontractor should be paid gross or net. Instead of issuing vouchers, contractors will make monthly returns and issue pay statements. The monthly return will include a declaration that the contractor has considered the status of the workers on the return and that none of them is an employee.

All contractors and subcontractors not complying with the new legislation may incur a heavy penalty.

How can we help:

Identify and mitigate the risk areas relating to the employment status of subcontractors
Keeping companies’ manual administration to a minimum while meeting their statutory obligations
Keep accurate and timely records in order that monthly returns can be completed, either by paper or online
Obtain Revenue clearance of employee status
Monthly online returns
