FCSA is an independent industry association which has been founded to set the standard for companies providing services to the professional freelance workforce and give this vital community a voice.


Our independent Chairman is Stuart Davis, and in his role as Chair of FCSA, Stuart brings a wealth of experience and expertise, drawing on his early experiences as an independent contractor through to his distinguished directorship of an international staffing agency.

Each company provides payroll, accountancy and administrative support and advice for the professional freelance workforce and we are united by our willingness to work to protect the interests of our clients and ensure a regulatory environment in which freelance workers can thrive.

We have realised the strength one collective voice could have, both in promoting the integrity of the industry and in gaining recognition of the professional freelance workforce’s contribution to UK plc.

Through a combined effort, we have initiated an industry-leading code of conduct to drive best practice. FCSA members each undergo an independent review from one of the ‘big four’ accountancy practices, with the review documentation being voluntarily submitted to HMRC. This sets the standard for professional compliance and proving that we work legally and ethically at all times.

This position gives us credibility and strength, ensuring our opinions are both heard and respected within the industry and by the Government and regulators.
