Why construction accounting
The construction industry is unique and has precise accounting and financial requirements. However, with a raft of UK government changes which included the launch of the VAT domestic reverse charge (March 2021), and new processes for submitting tax returns (via Making Tax Digital), and requirements for processing payments in the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), it is good to have an accountant by your side that understands these issues.
The construction sector has to think on its feet following the recent economic downturn impacting its ability to plan and carry out building projects, so managing cash flow, careful financial planning, and remaining efficient is vital.
A solid foundation for your construction business
Our specialist accounting team for the construction industry can offer advice on structuring your business, cash flow, tax planning and business structure to improve the smooth running and profitability of your construction or property business. We ensure all builders, developers, contractors, and sub-contractors meet the new and existing regulations so that you stay compliant and continue growing your business.
What is the
Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)?
The CIS covers most construction work, including plumbing, roofing, plastering, electrical and building works. Suppose you are a company or self-employed individual working as a contractor within the construction industry. In that case, you are obliged to register for the scheme and to make the appropriate payments to HMRC. If you are a subcontractor, you do not have to register, but deductions are taken from your payments at a higher rate if you haven’t.With our expertise in the construction sector, we can help provide you with the information you need to solve problems and make the right business decisions to boost profitability. When times get tough, we will be right there with you to help review and make suggestions to streamline or reduce costs.
WIP is the value of work completed but not yet invoiced. So, for example, if the individual or group is halfway through one project worth £20,000, the WIP is £10,000. However, calculating WIP and matching costs is not always as simple as it seems. That is why hiring a seasoned construction accountant is vital. Our construction accounting experts can advise on the best approach to purchase or hire equipment, what expenditures are permitted, and how to minimise tax liability.
