FCSA Accreditation

We’ve done the compliance checks for you

We understand that developing a compliant PSL is no small challenge. Distinguishing between organisations that pay lip-service to compliance and those that are fully committed is complex, costly and time-consuming. Getting it wrong can have serious implications on your business.

That’s why we have done the checks for you.

Every FCSA Accredited Member has already undergone the most stringent testing in the industry, at no cost to your agency.

Recognised as the industry’s compliance gold standard for umbrella employers, contractor accountants and CIS payroll providers; recruitment agencies can reduce risk by committing to a PSL comprising exclusively of fully compliant and transparent FCSA Accredited Members.

FCSA Code of Compliance

The FCSA operates a best practice Code of Compliance designed to ensure that its Accredited Members provide services, advice and employment to the highest level of professional and ethical standards in the UK.

The FCSA Code of Compliance provides complete peace of mind to recruiters when selecting umbrella employers, contractor accountants and CIS payroll providers for their preferred supplier list for the following reasons:
