Working in construction? Find out how much CIS tax you could get back and what expenses you can claim in under 30 seconds
What is a CIS Tax Rebate?
In the UK’s Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), subcontractors often have tax deducted at rates of 20% or 30%, without the benefit of the personal tax-free allowance. This setup frequently leads to tax overpayment.
When you file your Self-Assessment Tax Return at the end of the year, your correct tax liability is recalculated, taking into account your income, expenses, and personal allowance. If you’ve overpaid, you may be eligible for a CIS Tax Refund.
Who can use this calculator?
Anyone working in the construction industry who has had CIS deductions can use this calculator to estimate their potential rebate. If you work in construction as a PAYE employee, please use this calculator instead.
