Tax & the Construction Industry Scheme - A Guide to Compliance
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 virtual classroom session is designed to give you the necessary information to enable you to apply the rules as accurately as possible.
Compliance with the CIS has become even more important given the introduction of the VAT Domestic Reverse Charge.
