Who We Are

As the leading trade association for professional employment services (umbrella, accountancy, payroll), FCSA works to support the sector and the flexible workforce.

FCSA was set up in 2008 by a group of like-minded founders looking to set the standard and differentiate themselves from less scrupulous competitors in the marketplace.  The laws governing this space are complex, with numerous financial, tax and legal regulations to adhere to, and there are a large number of service provider organisations that support these workers.

FCSA Associate Members and FCSA Accredited Members adhere to FCSA Charter the which confirms that their businesses operate legally and are run by Fit & Proper Persons.

In addition, our FCSA Accredited Members demonstrate that they adhere to the rigorous standards set out in our compliance code.

In an unregulated industry, our FCSA Code of Compliance seeks to protect contractors and freelancers by ensuring they are only working with the most scrupulous businesses.

Whether you are an agency, contractor or end-hirer, by choosing to work with an FCSA Accredited Member you can be assured of regulatory compliance at the highest possible standards.
