FCSA Accreditation

FCSA accreditation is recognised as the industry’s compliance gold standard.

Accreditation is awarded to umbrella employers, contractor accountants and CIS payroll providers who can demonstrate the highest industry standards.

As a service provider, accreditation will provide assurance to recruitment agencies that your business is fully compliant and transparent. For recruitment agencies, accreditation removes the time, complexity and cost of implementing a robust preferred suppliers list.
