We take the stress and hassle out of obtaining your CIS rebate.

Our full attention is on processing your claim

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) is a tax program that allows contractors to withhold money from subcontractors' wages and send that money to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC). The deducted money is used as an "advanced payment" that will go towards the tax bill and National Insurance that the subcontractor must pay annually. The purpose of the CIS is to ensure that all subcontractors pay their fair share of taxes each year.

The CIS rebate is basically a tax overpayment that your employer has made on your behalf. If more money was withheld and sent to the HMRC than what you owe (your real tax liability), you get a rebate. It's that easy!
