Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)

As an Umbrella Company, we provide a CIS service for all eligible self-employed contractors in the construction industry.

Self-employed CIS

We offer support for self-employed sole traders operating under the CIS scheme. We can help workers to register for CIS, receive and process payments and ensure that the correct deductions are made at source based on your status.

Umbrella CIS

We offer a simple, convenient PAYE payroll solution for individuals where agencies and end clients require an intermediary registered for CIS.

Umbrella CIS is utilised where the worker is unable to pass an SDC assessment for their assignment or where an agency or end client is unwilling to engage with sole-traders as part of their supply chain.

Joint Employment Model (NHS)

Joint Employment could save you money and improve cash flow

This is intended for use in situations where:

▪ iConsult and the agency will jointly employ workers

▪ The agency will place workers on assignments

▪ iConsult handles HR and payroll-related functions

This model offers the opportunity for the agency to reimburse iConsult for staff costs and employment overhead, without iConsult having to charge VAT on these items.


With the changes to IR35 in the private sector looming, we want to ensure that our recruitment partners have the tools and resources needed to adapt to the changes.

For UK recruiters, the changes in IR35 legislation are hugely significant. IR35 legislation has been around since 2000 and recent changes have meant that there will be much more responsibility for recruiters when deciding IR35 status.

With the risk of Debt Transfer a real threat to your business, it means working with a compliant Umbrella Company and getting the work status correct for each contractor extremely important.

We aim to make sure that our recruitment partners are aware of what options are available and how to make the necessary changes.

When it comes to compliance, we’ve got you covered
