Construction
Industry Scheme

Keeping it simple

How we can help

Through our experience working with the construction industry, we understand the pressures of
being self-employed, so our service takes away some of the administrative burden.
 
We'll take care of the necessary deductions, expense claims, and if required, insurances, leaving you to do your job.
All of this means you won't have to worry about any nasty surprises or unexpected tax bills.

If you’re already registered with the scheme we’ll need to verify your status with HMRC before we can process your pay.

Each time you get paid we’ll make the necessary deductions for Tax and National Insurance, process any expenses and give you a statement of earnings (in the form of our payslip).
