Things to do in Ayrshire

Ayr is the largest town in Ayrshire, located along the south-west of Scotland’s coast borders. Situated by the Irish Sea the town has its own beach and has built amusements along the seafront for families, such as the Ayr Seafront Playpark for children for fair weather and Pirate Pete’s adventure play area. Pirate Pete’s has indoor soft play, lazer tag and a restaurant so this can be an ideal place for families when the weather is foul. Ayr not only has a beach but a coastal path too which looks over across the sea towards the Isle of Arran. The coastal path is 100 miles long, passing through Troon and Largs. The town features The Wallace Tower, the tower where William Wallace was held prisoner by the English. Wallace escaped by burning the original tower down; the one seen today is a rebuild.

Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)
A contractor must register with HMRC for the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) if they pay money to subcontractors for their construction services. Through the scheme, the contractor pays over a 20% of the labour charged by the subcontractor to HMRC, who retain this and use it against the subcontractor’s tax liabilities. This tax is reported to and paid to HMRC in a similar way to PAYE tax.
