CIS with ICS

If you work in the construction industry and are self-employed, then the CIS arrangement may be the best route for you. We’ve helped thousands of contractors working in dozens of industry sectors, including construction and engineering. With our company ethos of Trust, Care and Compliance you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.

What is CIS?

We introduced our CIS arrangement to help contractors that wish to provide services under the construction sector, or that are already working within CIS.

By engaging with us as a CIS sub-contractor, you can benefit from typical tax rates of 20% (subject to individual circumstances) without the burden of endless paperwork.

There are specific rules that HMRC expect you to follow. ICS work alongside you to ensure that you are abiding by these rules and are here to assist with any questions that you may have.

Once you have your UTR (Unique Tax Reference) call HMRC to register for CIS.
