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.

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.

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?

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

Template

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

CIS

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.

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.

Many thanks

Keith
