Construction Industry Scheme

Under the Construction Industry Scheme ( CIS ), contractors deduct money from a subcontractor’s payments and pass it to HM Revenue and Customs ( HMRC ). The deductions count as advance payments towards the subcontractor’s tax and National Insurance.

ZotaBooks automatically manages the Construction Industry Scheme deductions, manages the payments to HMRC and provides a remittance receipt to the sub-contractor confirming the net payment after the deduction.

Step One – Declare the Company in ZotaBooks as being registered under the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)

Step Two – Setup the Supplier as a sub-contractor under the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)

Once the Sub-Contractor is subject to the Contruction Industry Scheme (CIS) is ticked, the other CIS related entries become enabled and visible (UTR, CIS verification number and tax treatment)

Step Three – Enter the details on the invoice received from the sub-contractor

The CIS amounts deducted and the total invoice amount (including VAT) payable to the sub-contractor is calculated.
A remittance PDF is produced and made available to send to the contractor once the invoice is confirmed as paid to the sub-contractor.
