Construction Industry Scheme

Members may be asked if they are registered with CIS. This is not necessary. A list of excluded occupations is shown on the HMRC website.

The ANC obtained advice from a tax expert familiar with the construction industry who stated that “the scheme only covers construction operations and in laymans terms this is work involving buildings and/or structures with tools. White collar consultants and planners are excluded. Where a member of the Association would come into the scheme is if his firm engaged in a contract that supplied the planning and installation of noise reduction works in a single contract.”
