CIS Contractors

Are you a contractor working in the Construction Industry? The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) sets out the special tax rules for subcontractors who work in this industry and explains how payments must be handled by contractors. The biggest obligation for CIS contractors includes making a deduction of 20% tax on all subcontractor labour invoices and paying this amount directly to HMRC.

At Submit Accounts, we can help make your life a little easier. Let us:

  • Verify your subcontractors with HMRC
  • Ensure you pay your subcontractors correctly within the CIS scheme

IR35 Legislation – What is it? Does it affect me?

As a contractor, you’ve probably heard this term on the grapevine quite a lot!

In simple terms, IR35 is designed to assess whether a contractor is a genuine contractor, or whether they are in fact a ‘disguised’ employee. HMRC have cottoned on to the fact that some employers are ‘disguising’ employees as contractors to take advantage of tax benefits. For example, not paying employers’ National Insurance Contributions or not needing to pay employee benefits (such as sick pay or holiday pay).

From April 2021, every contractor needs to identify whether their contract is ‘inside IR35’ – making them an employee in HMRC’s eyes – or ‘outside IR35’, which identifies them as being self-employed.

At Submit Accounts, we can help you to navigate the IR35 rules and regulations and provide the best accounting services for your circumstances, including calculating any deductions needed if you’re inside IR35.

HMRC offers a simple online tool (CEST) that can help you to identify whether or not you may be classed as self-employed during a particular contract. Check out the link HERE.
