    Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)

    This course considers all the main aspects of CIS from the perspective of a public body as a ‘deemed contractor’. This will include a detailed overview of the scheme designed for those involved in its administration, as well as those responsible for engaging and communicating with subcontractors whose work may fall within the definition of the scheme.

    It will cover the common CIS compliance issues; in particular what falls within the scope of CIS and the ongoing obligations regarding making payments, deductions and reporting to HMRC. It will also consider cases of difficulty, including disputes over material costs, small payments exemption and payments under PFI projects. This will all be supported by the use of case studies. We will also cover the current HMRC consultation regarding the scheme’s operation including how the £1m threshold test is to be applied in the future. This consultation also introduces a number of planned changes regarding the appropriate procedures, which are highly relevant for public bodies.

    We recommend this training course to all PSTAX clients and contacts and particularly for staff with responsibility for administering the Scheme.

    The training sessions will start at 10.00 , finishing no later than 1.00pm

    The cost of the training courses is £165 per course for PSTAX Club subscribers and £195 per course for other delegates. There is a 10% discount for bookings of three or more places.
