How does HMRC pick who to investigate?

Each year the Revenue target specific industries for investigation; construction is always on this list. Now using historic online CIS returns they are able to data mine submissions in real-time looking for hallmarks of employment. These include:

  1. Sub-contractors with only one employer
  2. Sub-contractors who are paid regular amounts
  3. Sub-contractors receiving few payments for materials
  4. Sub-contractors who pay no other sub-contractors

Any contractor engaging these types of sub-contractor is flagged as a potential target.
