Construction Industry Tax Explained - 1-day training course in London

This course will provide a very practical insight into how the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) currently works in practice, and will explain the tax responsibilities and functions of both the contractor and subcontractor. Additionally, the area of employed or self-employed, and IR35 will be addressed. The course will also highlight and clarify the considerable forthcoming changes, to be introduced, that will affect the CIS tax regime.

The course will include practical case studies to work through and review. These will be based on the completion of monthly CIS returns, verification and the production of CIS tax deduction statements.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is aimed at delegates who require a practical, detailed understanding of the current Construction Industry Scheme tax administration requirements and rules. The full practical impact of CIS tax will be reviewed, together with an update of recent developments.

This course will also act as a useful CIS tax refresher for delegates who have previously dealt with the CIS regime, and need a practical and detailed update.
