Howard Royse has been the ICAEW’s lead representative in CIS discussions with HMRC for more than 10 years.
Construction Industry Scheme 3rd Edition
Guidance and Commentary
We believe that this is still the only up-to-date publication dealing with the CIS tax rules.
A practical guide to dealing with the requirements of the Construction Industry Scheme, based on years of experience gained by the author in representing clients, liaising with HMRC and working in the construction industry. The book complements and expands upon HMRC’s publication CIS 340. It includes observations on the various CIS consultations held by HMRC and responses issued thereafter.
The third edition has been substantially updated, including an array of new case decisions. One of these cases serves as a reminder of the importance of the rules, as a misinterpretation of the CIS legislation cost the taxpayer more than £1.7 million. The new edition also covers recent revisions to the regulations, and changes arising from the 2020 consultation.
