Painters

Do you need help to claim your CIS rebate?

Most painters who are employed as subcontractors in the United Kingdom are required to comply with the Construction Insurance Scheme (CIS). At the end of the year, and before January 31, a CIS tax refund must be file. Depending on how much taxes were paid to the HMRC throughout the year, the painter is almost always entitled to a CIS rebate. Claiming expenses and deductions that are related to the job can also offset the painter's tax liability and increase the rebate.

Our CIS tax experts will work closely with you to answer all questions that you have, file your tax return promptly, and accurately and ensure that you receive all of the money that is owed to you.
