The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) is for contractors and subcontractors working in construction.
The scheme is a method of withholding tax and National Insurance contributions and passing them to HMRC.
Contractors are responsible for calculating and deducting the payments due to HMRC on behalf of a subcontractor.
QuickBooks Online Standard Payroll allows you to record your deductions suffered under CIS and submit the figures to HMRC. Before you start, make sure that CIS in turned on in your QuickBooks.
