Smart Pay with CIS Umbrella

In the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), contractors are obliged to deduct money from subcontractors’ payments for HMRC. This is similar to PAYE, where deductions are like advance payments towards a subcontractor’s tax and national insurance. One Click Umbrella can help you focus on running your business with less red tape.

CIS Compliance with Less Bureaucracy

Under CIS, monthly returns for payments are required by HMRC. Like any tax system, there are penalties for late returns, ranging from a £100 to £3,000. It’s important to keep track of your CIS returns rather than getting an unwanted surprise later in the year.

When using CIS Umbrella, contractors can relax with help and advice from our personable staff. That leaves you with more time to focus on higher-earning activities.

Accelerated Payment Notice: What is it?

Accelerated Payment Notices were first introduced in 2014 and have since been used by HMRC in order to recover billions of pounds of taxes. The notice states that HMRC believes that the recipient has willingly partaken in a tax avoidance scheme and therefore are required to pay the amount that has been wrongfully avoided within a 90-day period.

Channel 4 Dispatches’ investigation into umbrella companies: our response

An episode of the Channel 4 documentary series “Dispatches” broadcast on Monday 19th January 2015 featured what was described as an investigation into umbrella companies. Unfortunately, the documentary did not show how the vast majority of compliant umbrella companies work for the benefit of many thousands of highly skilled workers across the UK – instead it showed how some companies can take advantage of complicated mechanisms to avoid certain parts of employment law and minimum wage legislation.
