A subcontractor working under CIS can claim any expenses incurred directly from their work. The allowed expenses include tools and equipment, travel costs, materials, and other essentials for their work. It’s important to keep receipts and invoices to support these claims. Remember that any expenses claimed must be reasonable and directly related to the work performed to be eligible for a tax deduction.
CIS goes under the tax return section “Self-employment (including CIS)”. Therefore, a subcontractor can claim any expenses related to their work and offset these against their CIS income, reducing the tax they need to pay.
The CIS tax rebate you will receive depends on your taxable income and expenses. The standard rate of CIS tax is 20%, and a 5% rate is available for those registered with “gross” status. Therefore, the amount of tax you may get back is calculated based on your CIS income minus any expenses and the amount of CIS tax the contractor has already deducted.
CIS stands for Construction Industry Scheme and is a set of rules by HM Revenue & Customs for tax purposes for contractors and subcontractors in the UK construction industry. CIS aims to ensure that contractors and subcontractors in the construction industry pay the correct income tax and National Insurance.
Yes, subcontractors must be CIS registered if they carry out construction work for a contractor registered for CIS, and the activity is subject to the scheme’s rules. However, the builder does not have to register under CIS if he does only private jobs and works directly with the end customer.
Suppose the contractor does not deduct CIS and does not declare it. In that case, the subcontractor may be liable to pay the tax and face penalties and interest charges. Additionally, the contractor may face penalties and fines for not complying with the rules of the CIS scheme.
