CIS Compliance

£50 Per Sub-Contractor

HMRC are undertaking more non-compliance audits as they seek to recover employer’s national insurance from the contractor where sub-contractors are deemed not to be self-employed. The subcontractor must have self-employed status, if challenged by HMRC the contractor has the National Insurance liability exposure and not the contractor. It is important for the contractor that subcontractors have public liability and tax enquiry insurance to ensure their self-employed status.

Status Compliance services provided based on requirements. We can arrange a CIS Compliance check of your business and assist in providing the following services each of which supports subcontractor self-employed status.

There are large numbers of contractors who are unaware of the risks. Contractors are possibly also unaware of the scale of the exposure.

The Importance of Compliance

A Contractor engages 10 subcontractors on £30kpa. Employees NI 12% Employers NI 13.8% total 25.8%

If non-compliant the contractor has to pay class 1 NIC for each subcontractor

= £24k ( amount over LEL) x 25.8% = £6.2k per man x 10 men = £62k x 6 years ( maximum HMRC can go back )

= £372k plus interest and penalties circa £500k estimated HMRC liability
