Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)


Income tax collection scheme used by HMRC for subcontractors in construction. If you are a self-employed construction worker, you’re eligible.

This scheme means you’ll have 20% tax deducted from your salary rather than 30% which the contractor would usually deduct. If your earnings total to more than £50,270/year, you’ll have to claim overpayment at the end of the tax year via a tax return.
