Agencies / Hirers - Request a Compliance Pack

CIS Engagement

CIS refers to Construction Industry Scheme engagement and invoicing. This is a term used in the construction industry when referring to contractors who pay sub-contractors to perform work for them.

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) sets the rules which contractors must follow regarding how they pay their sub-contractors for this work.

This scheme was developed by HMRC and it only applies to the United Kingdom’s construction industry. Other countries and territories have their own rules for construction and payments to sub-contractors.

The Construction Industry Scheme sets out the rules for how payments to sub-contractors for construction work must be handled by contractors in the construction industry.

Who is eligible?

CIS can apply to any employment agency or end client / hirer that supplies self employed sub-contractors to the construction industry.

Subject to a Supervision, Direction and Control assessment to ensure that the sub-contractor is genuinely self employed, Fair Pay Services will be able to pay them through our CIS engagement scheme and take the administrative burden away from you.

We will;

  • Verify the sub-contractor with HMRC
  • Calculate and deduct CIS tax, then pay across to HMRC
  • Inform the sub-contractor the amount they will be paid
  • Take all responsibility for all status submissions to HMRC
  • Provide both a payment statement (for each time the sub-contractor is paid) and an annual CIS deduction statement
  • take away the risk of CIS penalties

All sub-contractors that are paid through our CIS engagement will have access to their personal Flexr portal.  Flexr is a platform that will redefine the landscape for sub-contractors.

Flexr combines humanity and technology through a dedicated call centre to assist with any enquiries they may have.

Flexr has a user friendly smartphone App that provides full visibility of all timesheet and pay statements, a simple tool to manage expenses and a ‘personal assistant’ for any work related matters.

Flexr is a dedicated sub-contractor portal with all the functionality of the smartphone App and more.

They will also have access to our unbeatable benefits package, Flexr Rewards!

They will receive a login for our website which features thousands of exclusive perks and discounts to help their money go that little bit further!

From supermarket discounts with Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Asda, Waitrose & Marks & Spencer.  Great price cinema tickets, money off of meals out, coffee shops and more, these have been handpicked to promote financial, physical, and emotional wellbeing for all of our sub-contractors.

To use a perk or discount, they simply login and either purchase a gift card to receive instant Cashback or generate a code, show the code to the cashier and your discount is automatically applied.  It couldn’t be easier!
