    What is CIS payroll?

    CIS payroll is a specific way of processing the payments from contractors to subcontractors under the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS).

    The Construction Industry Scheme is a specialised system with set rules designed for the construction industry in particular. It is designed to ensure that subcontractors are being paid correctly and contractors are following the correct rules and regulations when it comes to processing payroll, such as how they deduct tax and National Insurance from the subcontractors’ pay.

    How does CIS payroll work?

    If you are a contractor who hires subcontractors, or you operate a business and spend £3 million or more on construction within 12 months, there are certain rules that apply when you pay your subcontractors for their work.

    Here’s how the CIS payroll process works:

    1. Register for the Construction Industry Scheme before taking on any subcontractors.

    2. Verify the subcontractors’ CIS status before hiring them to get the correct tax deduction rates.

    3. Ensure you make the relevant CIS tax deductions for any work carried out before making payments.

    4. Ensure you provide relevant payment statements to the subcontractors detailing how much has been paid and deducted.

    5. Submit monthly CIS returns and keep records of all payments.

    The different CIS rules and regulations can be confusing at first. But, with the right level of support from our expert team at Ascott Blake, CIS payroll can become a seamless part of your business operations at the most affordable cost. Get in touch with us today.

    Frequently asked questions about CIS payroll

    For more information about how CIS payroll services can benefit you, please take a look at some of the FAQs below.

    Who needs our CIS payroll service?

    Our CIS payroll service is suited to contractors and construction firms who employ subcontractors for their projects. If you deal with the hiring and payment process of subcontractors and want to get some expert advice and assistance, then our services are tailored for you. We’ll ensure you have the peace of mind and added time you are looking for so you can continue working on the front end of your business, knowing the payments are taken care of.

    While we primarily offer this service to main contractors, we can also help subcontractors with other aspects of their finances, such as working out their contract income and filing Self-Assessment tax returns.

    Is CIS payroll different to traditional payroll?

    CIS payroll is different to the traditional payroll system you might be used to. It has its own set of unique rules to ensure the correct tax deductions are made. Following these rules isn’t always easy, which is why it is good to know the difference.

    Traditional payroll tends to operate in a Pay As You Earn (PAYE) system, where employers automatically deduct employees’ tax and National Insurance Contributions from their pay based on the different tax codes.

    CIS payroll, on the other hand, requires businesses and main contractors to calculate these deductions from their subcontractors’ wages based on the CIS tax percentages provided by HMRC.

    Do I pay CIS as a limited company?

    If you are a limited company that pays contractors or subcontractors, then you will be responsible for making the relevant CIS deductions and paying HMRC. You can do this by submitting monthly CIS returns to HMRC detailing how much you paid the contractors and how much tax was deducted.
