Seminar 5 UpdateInformation


The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) can be in point in many circumstances and getting it wrong can lead to substantial liabilities (and in some cases unexpected liabilities).

It is essential for businesses operating within the construction sector, as well as the professional advisors who assist their clients, to be fully versed with the CIS and when and how it might apply to their or their client’s business.

This course covers the two fundamental parts of the CIS being, when and how CIS applies in accordance with primary legislation and the administration of the CIS as set out under secondary legislation.

The course is designed to give the delegates the necessary information to enable them to apply the rules as accurately as possible.

In addition, delegates will receive practical advice on how to manage the typical issues that can arise under the CIS from questions regarding the application of the rules to making payments etc.

Compliance with the CIS has become even more important given the introduction of the VAT Domestic Reverse Charge.
