CIS (Construction Industry Scheme)

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) sets out the rules for how payments to subcontractors for construction work must be handled by contractors in the construction industry. The scheme applies mainly to contractors and subcontractors in mainstream construction work; however, businesses or organisations whose core activity isn’t construction but have a high annual spend on construction may also count as contractors and fall under the scheme.
