According to new research from CITB, the UK will see more than 182,000 new jobs in construction open up over the next five years, thanks to huge demand for new homes. This will lead to an influx of PAYE and CIS tax claims as the growing industry places more builders and workers into temporary building sites.
The Construction Skills Network Forecast from CITB demonstrates that a third of the UK’s entire construction output until 2018 will be the building of new homes. CITB cited the government’s Help to Buy Scheme as having a positive effect on the construction industry, but highlighted the need for more sustained investment in industrial projects and long-term infrastructure to ensure secured growth after 2015.

Tax codes are a very important thing to keep your eye on. As of April 6th 2013, the standard tax code is now 944L. As a general rule of thumb, if your number is a little higher then you’re probably not paying enough tax, yes it feels nice when payday comes but not when you’ve got to pay it all back at the end of the tax year. It’s far better to keep a standard code and claim back what you’re entitled to when the time comes and avoid any nasty surprises. Here at Express Tax Claims, we are always at hand to liaise with HMRC on your behalf in areas like this and it’s all part of the service.
