Inland Revenue

Taxation of the construction industry has caused a rush activity at the Revenue. Four press releases were issued on the 23 October on construction.

First, there was notice of new guidance on whether a subcontractor should qualify for a CIS5 certificate or a CIS6 certificate (formerly known as the 714C and the 714P certificates).

Second, following a previous release on 6 October, two new extra statutory concessions have been issued in respect of the turnover tests under the Construction Industry Scheme which commences next August.

The last two press releases detail the administrative steps that have been taken to ensure the Construction Industry Scheme will be in place next year. For more details, call 0171 438 6420 or visit http://
