CIS Accounts

If you are a contactor or subcontractor working in the construction industry, you must comply with special tax rules and methods for handling payments as set out in the Construction Industry Scheme. Failure to comply with regulations will result in penalties being issued by HM Revenue & Customs. (HMRC) At Nokes, we keep our clients up to date with the latest CIS regulations, providing immediately notification of any changes and offering advice and guidance on how this affects their position so compliance can be assured.


Under the CIS scheme, contractors must follow prescribed guidelines in relation to hiring and paying subcontractors.

At Nokes, our accountants will ensure you are fully aware of your obligations under the scheme and provide the support you need to ensure regulatory compliance.

Our services include; registering you as a contractor with HMRC, verifying your subcontractors are registered with HMRC, ensuring subcontractors are paid in compliance with the scheme, preparing and issuing deduction statements to subcontractors and preparing and supplying HMRC with monthly statements.


Under the CIS scheme, subcontractors are obliged to register with HMRC and immediately notify them of any changes to their business including their business address, business name and business partners.

Each contractor that hires you must decide whether you are self -employed or an employee. A self-employed status will result in your registration as a subcontractor under the CIS scheme. HMRC will set you up to receive payments under deduction and contractors will deduct tax at 20 per cent from your invoices and pay this to HMRC.

At Nokes, our accountants will provide the advice and guidance you need to understand your position and comply with regulations. Our services include; advising on your status as a subcontractor or employee and correctly registering you with HMRC; verifying your status with HMRC on behalf of your contractor, taking care of business records, preparing self-assessment tax returns and calculating your tax liability and any refunds due.
