With over 700 private investment projects planned in Construction and Energy in the UK over the next 5 years worth over £500 billion and the lowest rate of corporation tax in Western Europe, construction continues to be one of the strongest contributors to UK FDI with foreign investors representing 40% ownership of all infrastructure.
At Global FDI we have years of experience in working with some of Europe’s leading construction firms and have developed a range of services bespoke to our construction clients. We are the only UK provider to offer accredited Health & Safety training/CSCS applications internationally in German and Spanish, and we are also CIS specialists.


CIS TAX – Construction Industry Scheme tax (RCT in Ireland) applies to both contractors and subcontractors in the construction industry. Getting the maximum possible refund from HMRC can be a complex process, and as industry specialists Global FDI will help get you the maximum CIS/RCT refund out of your expenses. Unlike many companies we do not take a percentage of your claim as our fee, but simply charge a set monthly fee based on the work involved.

✔  Expert advice from CIS specialists
✔  Preparation and submission of CIS/RCT returns
✔    Prompt submission of claims and reminders to avoid any late fees.
