Subcontractors and CIS

AW are on hand to offer a cost-effective, efficient CIS service.

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) sets out the special tax rules for subcontractors who work in the construction industry.

The CIS carries severe penalties for those who fail to comply with its rules and regulations, so it is always advisable to seek expert guidance.

AW are on hand to offer a cost-effective, efficient CIS service. We can assist with the following:

  • Checking whether the CIS applies to you
  • Understanding and getting started with the scheme – recognising the roles that contractors, subcontractors and managing agents occupy
  • Processing payments and receiving pay under the CIS
  • Keeping accurate CIS records and contractor monthly returns
  • Reporting any changes to business under the CIS
  • Making the most of the CIS.

Our thorough, expert knowledge of this industry and the close business relationships that we have developed with our clients allow us to aid owner-managers in achieving their financial goals.

Please contact us for further details.


There are many reasons why more and more people are choosing to work on a freelance basis and become subcontractors.
