What is FCSA accreditation?
Uk’s accreditation comes from the FCSA (The Freelancer & Contractor Services Association), the UK’s leading membership body that works to raise standards and promote compliance in the temporary staffing market. The FCSA codes are recognised as the gold standard in the industry and its members undergo the most rigorous and stringent auditing procedures each year. The FCSA supports contractors, freelancers, sole traders, recruitment agencies and payroll providers (accountancy, umbrella organisation, CIS) in their efforts to operate within the law in the temporary staffing industry. So next time you are looking for an umbrella company, look for the FCSA logo on the provider’s website, which demonstrates their high standards and commitment to operating in compliance with the law.
What does FCSA mean?
To receive the prestigious FCSA accreditation, umbrella companies, contractor accountants and CIS payroll specialists must be able to demonstrate that their internal procedures comply with the strict FCSA Codes of Compliance. The FCSA Charter sets out the minimum ethical standards and levels of conduct expected of accredited members of the Freelancer & Contractor Services Association (FCSA). An FCSA Accredited Member is a service provider – i.e. an umbrella employer, freelance accountant or CIS payroll provider – that has been independently audited to confirm that it adheres to the Freelancer & Contractor Services Association’s (FCSA) strict Codes of Compliance and a copy of the audit report is sent to HMRC to ensure full transparency.
