Tax rebates for builders

We understand that filing your tax return can be a slow and painful process, but at Brian Alfred we take the hassle away for CIS and PAYE workers. We’re experts when it comes to tax refunds for builders and we’re specialists in maximising your rebate, so you get back everything you’re owed.

As a builder, you’re likely to be paid either through PAYE (Pay as You Earn) or via the CIS (Construction Industry Scheme). Whether you’re currently a PAYE worker, have been CIS for years or have recently made the switch from PAYE to CIS, we can help you get your full tax refund.

Tax Rebates for CIS Workers

If you’re a construction worker – whether you specialise in building, scaffolding, roofing or plastering – and paid through the CIS scheme, you’re likely to be owed a tax refund. As there is a standard advance tax deduction for CIS workers of 20%, members of the scheme usually overpay in tax throughout the year and are therefore due refunds at the end of the tax year. As one of the UK’s leading CIS tax rebate specialists, Brian Alfred will help you maximise your tax rebate.

What helps you get the largest possible CIS Tax Rebate?

We’re experts at maximising your rebate and getting you back all of the tax that you’re owed. To make the most of your tax rebate as a CIS worker, we need to know the following things about you, however if you need our help or assistance we’re just at the other end of the phone.

  • Your income
  • Your expenses
  • Your mileage (if applicable)

When you request our tax pack and fill it in, we need to figure out exactly what you’re owed. Brian Alfred’s group of experts will help you claim your CIS rebate not only for for the tax you’ve already overpaid, but for additional things such as travel and accommodation, training, tools and a host of other expenses.

What expenses can I get refunded in my tax rebate?

As a builder, whether you’re paid through PAYE or a CIS worker, you may be surprised at what expenses you can claim back. There are, however, some differences to what you can claim depending on whether you’re a CIS or PAYE worker. As a general rule, if you buy something you wouldn’t otherwise have bought if it wasn’t for your work, you may be able to claim it back.

Tax rebates for CIS workers
