We help individuals that often ask the questions ‘how do I register for CIS?’, “what is a CIS number”, ‘how to apply for CIS’ and ‘how do I complete the CIS registration?’.
The Construction Industry Scheme is a scheme that applies to payments to self-employed workers and businesses in the Construction Industry. Under the scheme tax is deducted from payments and paid over to HMRC.
This is different from other self-employed individuals not within the construction industry, who normally receive their payments gross, which means no tax is deducted.
We have made the registration process as simple as possible for you. All you need to do is fill out the form above and it will be submitted to HMRC within 24 hours.
If you are not already registered as self employed, you can do this and register for CIS at the same time. The fastest way to apply for a CIS is to fill the UTR application and choose your CIS industry and we’ll register for both UTR and CIS. You will need your National Insurance number before you can apply for your UTR and CIS.
If you want to start working as Self-Employed and working in construction industry you need to register for CIS, this way you can save yourself 10% off on your income tax bill. With our CIS registration your contractor will deduct 30% from your wages but with CIS registration this deduction will be only 20%.
All the people who are working in construction industry including plumbers, electricians, builders, groundworkers, jointers etc. From razing a building to the ground, to the final coat of paint, the CIS is mandatory for most contractors.
If you supply construction industry type services directly to a homeowner (so not to a contractor), then this would not fall under the CIS and the customer would pay you gross on production of your invoice.
Registration under the CIS is in addition to registration as self-employed for Self Assessment, not instead of registering as self-employed. This means for those new to both self-employment and the CIS, there are two separate registrations. However, both can be done at the same time.
Once you have registered for your UTR number through our online application form, HMRC will issue your UTR and send you a letter at home, containing your UTR number, it may take up to 6 weeks (or only 10 working days if you chose our FAST TRACK UTR Service)
