CIS (short for “the Construction Industry Scheme“) was set up by HMRC to collect income tax throughout the year from people working in the construction industry.
Construction companies deduct tax on behalf of their workers (subcontractors) and send the money to HMRC as tax payments:
Note that CIS only applies if you work in construction as a subcontractor and you have registered for CIS – here is how you do it.
Big Woodworks Ltd hires John Carpenter on their site as a subcontractor. Every month John is owed £1,500 pounds for his work.
In the example above, John’s annual income was £18,000 (£1,500 * 12).
John technically owes HMRC £2,370.20 (£1,230 Income tax + £1,015 national insurance).
However, throughout the year Big Woodworks Ltd paid £3,600 in taxes on John’s behalf!
John is now due a refund.
