Top construction payroll questions

If you’re worried about getting your payroll matters right for your construction business, don’t hesitate to get in touch Essential Payroll. But if you have any immediate queries, we’ve answered some of the most common questions below.

What is CIS payroll?

CIS is a government-founded construction industry tax deduction scheme. Operated through HMRC, the CIS scheme makes it possible for income tax, national insurance contributions, and other necessary deductions to be made from the subcontractor’s paycheck.

It means that subcontractors no longer have to submit self-assessments. All tax is worked out monthly in a similar way to PAYE tax codes. Essential Payroll is a payroll company that can help construction businesses to take care of this.

What is Suffered CIS tax?

Suffered CIS tax is a tax that is deducted from a subcontractor’s invoice to a contractor. If the subcontractor is an employer, the deduction is offset against any monthly PAYE liability the subcontractor has.

It’s submitted to the HMRC via the Employer Payment Summary (EPS). If the subcontractor isn’t an employer and is self-employed, the taxation is offset against any self-assessment liability.

What is Deducted tax?

Deducted tax is the tax that has been applied by the contractor to a subcontractor’s invoice. The contractor calculates and collects this through the CIS. The cumulative CIS tax for subcontractors during the tax month is submittedto HMRC each month via an EPS.
