Proposals include;

  • Amending the Compliance Test to include VAT compliance – this includes the initial test to gain Gross Payment Status (GPS) as well as the annual compliance check.
  • Currently all CIS direct tax affairs must be up to date with all returns and payments correct and submitted by the statutory deadlines but indirect taxes are not considered.
  • Bringing forward the first annual review of compliance history to 6 months (instead of 12 months) and then annually thereafter.
  • Introducing a power to enable HMRC to mandate the channel of application for GPS to be exclusively digitally.

Administrative Easements

  • Simplifying the treatment of payments made by landlords to tenants
  • Reducing the administrative impact of operating the CIS for certain groups

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) Reform Consultation closes on 20th July 2023.
