What is CIS?

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) sets out rules on how contractors handle payments to subcontractors for construction work such as engineering, repairs or installing power systems. This applies if your clients’ (as the contractor) work with subcontractors in the construction industry. 

As an accountancy, bookkeeper firm or payroll bureau, it’s crucial to make sure your clients understand their obligations and remain completely compliant throughout the CIS process.
