CIA Software Features

Subcontractors Accounts Software

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) introduced by HMRC defines the rules for how payments to subcontractors for construction work must be handled by contractors in the Construction Industry.

The scheme applies mainly to contractors and subcontractors in the Building and Construction Industry, however businesses or organisations with a different core activity but with a high annual spend on construction may also count as contractors and fall under the CIS scheme.

As a contractor you have certain obligations under the CIS scheme, including registering with the scheme, checking whether your subcontractors are registered with HMRC, paying subcontractors and submitting monthly returns.

Our Construction Industry Accounts (CIA) software received official HMRC recognition for the CIS Scheme and deals with all aspects of the subcontractors accounting from online subcontractor verification and submission of monthly returns to automatic production of monthly statements.

CIA software benefits in summary:

  • CIA verifies your subcontractors!
  • CIA calculates your subcontractor tax deductions!

  • Subcontractor Setup

    This is where each Subcontractor is entered, including contact details and default information for the individual e.g. VAT Registration, Default Nominals, Payment Type etc. CIS details are also stored, and you can verify new subcontractors automatically using CIA’s link to the HMRC electronic gateway.
