CIS Penalties Over £10K Reduced to Nil
Care to expand?
Client failed to register for CIS and operate CIS procedures received £10,000 penalties. We managed to successfully appeal (July 2011) to have these eliminated.
That's a result
Well done. HMRC have not succeeded in making any action against any of my CIS clients stick - be it penalty for non-compliance or threatened removal of gross status. But none involved sums of that amount, so good to hear.
Hi - i have a client in a similar situation.
Would be grateful if i could have a look at the template.

I have a major battle with HMRC c£21k client penalties so would be more than glad to receive any ammunition such as your letter. Many thanks in advance.
Could I have a copy too please?
I have a similar problem, over £16k in fines.
My client (Ltd Co.) thought that he didn't need to submit CIS300's as his company was sufferring CIS deductions that he could offset.
About to appeal so would be grateful of a copy.

Great result. I have a client who will have need of some kind of leverage with CIS penalties. Could I have a template of the letter, please?
We have just been hit with CIS penalties so would be really grateful if you could email a copy of the letter template please;
can you please send me the template or your email address
I would also like a template of this letter, if you could please send it to me at [email protected].
You never know when the HMRC are going to try and screw you for CIS, as they seem obsessed with it at the moment and these penalties.
Much appreciated and would like to thank you in advance.
Another request please
No clients in this situation at the moment, but good to have a template ready.
Many thanks (in hopeful anticipation) :)
I will need your email address though!

My best so far is £2,800. Hope not to go any higher but every weapon helps in the battle with Hideous Mistakes by Right Charlies!
My best is £7,800
My best is £7,800 , but johnjenkins has hit the nail on the head.

Is that all?
I had a guy in a similar position come to me with a two foot stack of un-opened brown envelopes totalling some £23,500 in penalties, ended up getting him a refund of over £1500, plus £30 repayment supplement.
Who's the Daddy - lol
Would appreciate a copy too, as mentioned before, it's always useful to have extra resources.
Thank you for your generous offer...
It would be easier to put the template on here instead of sending individual emails to all.
I have removed my email address as I don't want to be swamped with spam
OK - thanks for the interest - document coming through soon.
I have just had a case come to me last week which technically could go back many years.
Would very much appreciate a copy of the template
CIS - Penalties
Can you please email it to me also at
Me also, please.
Could I have a copy please
Sounds like an excellent template to have.
Please could I have a copy too.
Don't know whether it would help any of your clients going forward, but I have recently established a company called Construction Industry Scheme Limited - www ciscontracts.co.uk
As a Chartered Accountant who was in practice for many years and someone involved in property development, I am cognisant of the issues relating to self employment in the construction and affiliated trades.As you will be aware HMRC are “attacking” the sub- contractor market.
Last year they published a document entitled “False self employment in the Construction Industry”. This sets out the plans to treat all labour only subcontractors as being liable to Paye & NIC as soon as the country is seen to be coming out of recession.This year, 100 new Revenue officers were appointed to “tackle tax and NI abuse in the Construction Industry” andConstruction companies working on the Olympics were warned that they would be monitored for breaches in Paye, NIC and minimum wage.Also, In July, The Supreme Court [Autoclenz] determined that tax registered self employed individuals working for a company were actually entitled to employment rights with the company they were working for.
By using our services, construction and other companies can protect themselves against such claims and also avoid potential Employment Tribunal cases from disgruntled subcontractors claiming employment status .It also enables the individual subcontractors to protect their self employed status going forward, so everyone benefits. There can also be substantial savings in tax and NI and administration costs. Our services are not a “scheme” but purely a methodology of operating in a compliant and efficient manner.
What we term as our payment facilitation service has been developed in consultation with leading tax counsel and accountants BDO and currently will survive the forthcoming proposed legislation.
By the way, there is no reason that the client should be required to be made aware of BDO’s involvement in the development of our service.
Any queries, happy to reply.
A copy of the template would be much appreciated
template greatly appreciated...
...have a case on at the moment where this sounds ideal. Thank you in anticipation
Could I also ask for a copy of your template letter
Conscious of the great many times you have been asked for a copy of your template letter, but could I also request a copy.
May I also have a copy of your template
This template would be just the ticket to help in my situation
I would be very interested to receive a copy of your template as I have got a client who has never registered under CIS, and to be fair the vast majority of his work is outside CIS but has a handful of jobs that technically should be within the scheme. HMRC have picked up on this and are getting excited and talking about penalties and interest.
there must be something going on at HMR&C as I too have a client with a CIS issue.
Please would you send a copy of your template to me: [email protected]
and me please
A fantastic result! I also have a client with a CIS issue. Please would you email a copy of your template to me: [email protected]
Very grateful if you could email me also
Many thanks in advance
I would be very grateful for a copy of the template too please as I have a similar situation. Many thanks.

My client has been hit with over £15000 penalty as he registered as subcontractor but made deductions from a subcontractor of a few hundred pounds so when it was declared - HMRC decided to backdate his registration and hit him with the penalties
