If you work in construction, most likely your contractor takes a 20% flat from your pay and gives it to HMRC as part of the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS).
By doing your CIS tax return you can claim back what you spent on things like equipment, clothing, meals, and travel. Plus you get back your tax-free Personal Allowance!
That’s an average tax rebate of £2,000.
There are a number of things that your TaxScouts accountant can help you expense on your CIS tax return to ensure you get back as much as possible:
That’s right — pay just £119 up front for your CIS tax rebate. This is the fastest and cheapest way to get your money back from HMRC.
We know things are a bit tight. You can pay £239 later from your rebate when it arrives. This can take a longer to get your money, but it helps if you don’t have cash to pay up front.
It’s easy and quick to get started. Just answer a few questions about yourself and upload:
What you need to do:

For most people, this is actually more than their expenses anyway, and we help you claim it all within our app.
There are a ton of CIS deductions you can use to increase your rebate:
One very important thing to keep in mind: if your expenses are under £1,000, don’t bother with them – just claim £1,000 as a flat, tax-free allowance. All self-employed people can use it.
The only things we need from you are:
If you’re a construction worker working under the CIS (Construction Industry Scheme), you’re likely due a tax refund instead. That’s because your contractor is deducting 20% (or even 30%, if you’re not registered under CIS) from your pay, and sending it to HMRC. For most people this is more than they should be paying.
