Sage 50 CIS

Sage 50 Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) works with your Sage 50 Accounts software to help you keep up to date and compliant with CIS legislation. 

From 6 April 2007, Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) legislation means that the way you manage your subcontractors’ tax deductions has changed. 

You will need to submit monthly information to HMRC before deducting tax from your subcontractors pay, as well as producing monthly statements for them.  Sage 50 CIS can be added to your existing Sage 50 Accounts (v2007 onwards) to help you with this.
