CIS refers to Construction Industry Scheme Payroll. This is a term used in the construction industry when referring to contractors who pay subcontractors to perform work for them.
CIS Payroll sets the rules which contractors must follow regarding how they pay their subcontractors for this work.
This scheme was developed by HMRC and it only applies to the United Kingdom’s construction industry. Other countries and territories have their own rules for construction and payments to subcontractors.
The Construction Industry Scheme sets out the rules for how payments to subcontractors for construction work must be handled by contractors in the construction industry.
Who is eligible?
CIS Payroll can apply to any employment agency or end client / hirer that supplies self employed sub-contractors to the construction industry. Subject to a Supervision, Direction and Control assessment to ensure that the sub-contractor is genuinely self employed, Fair Pay Services will be able to pay them through our CIS Payroll scheme and take the administrative burden away from you.
