Can any one advise with regards to being exempt from construction industry scheme when carrying out work for bigger companies.

From what I can see online I think we are exempt because we are only cleaning windows and PVC cleaning but not sure how to prove this, which is whats being asked of us. 

Otherwise they will be deducting 30% 

Thanks

Any company using cis scheme should only be taking 20% off your earnings.

I used to be a subby to a large flooring company and used to get taxed 20%, you won't be exempt i don't think, as you are working for a contractor as a subby.

Unless there's another way round it I don't know about?

Thanks Lee,

Looks like you have got to register for cis scheme and then apply for gross payment status.

Are you doing external cleaning only and are they regular cleans or one-off "builders cleans"?

Yes external cleaning only, and its one off cleans of old blocks of flats.
