Liberty Bishop is a specialist in supplying umbrella employment, payroll and accountancy services for contract workers and recruitment agencies. Established in 1995, we provide a range of different solutions on both a domestic (UK) and an international basis (Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden).
Since opening our doors in the mid-nineties, our focus has always been on the delivery of 1st class customer service, backed-up by compliant solutions and robust systems. Unlike some providers that offer a highly automated service throughout, Liberty Bishop successfully marries up-to-date technology with “old school” relationship building and customer care in order to provide our contract workers and supply chain with the best possible experience.
FCSA Accreditation for our UK umbrella and Limited Company accountancy services acts as a valued “stamp of approval” and gives agencies and contractors alike a real sense of security when dealing with us.
Through our umbrella model, we take on all employer responsibilities, meaning that we fully account for all tax and National Insurance under PAYE, and also ensure our employees have access to statutory employee rights such as holiday pay, sick pay, and pension auto-enrolment. All employees receive payment via faster pay as standard and are fully covered by a comprehensive insurance package. Our employees also have access to Liberty Bishop Rewards, a generous employee rewards programme which gives access to various high street discounts and promotions.
Liberty Bishop’s Limited Company accountancy practice offers a bespoke range of services for those contractors that prefer the increased flexibility and control of trading via their own company rather than as an employee of an umbrella company. We have packages that cater for all levels of support requirement and can also incorporate companies at no extra cost and supply full insurance coverage if the contractor selects our most comprehensive (Gold) accountancy package. Our accountancy clients have 24/7 access to an online accountancy portal and there are no additional pay-by-the-hour charges on top of the standard monthly fees, meaning that contractors are not discouraged from asking for additional support when it’s needed.
Marc Scott, sales director at Liberty Bishop, comments: “We’re delighted to have been granted accredited status with FCSA. We’ve always been confident in our ability to meet all compliance requirements, but external approval from such a highly-regarded body as The FCSA is great news for our business. My team work hard to deliver quality services to agencies and contractors, and we hope that FCSA approval will present us with lots of new opportunities in these compliance-driven times. We look forward to working with The FCSA to further promote the importance of compliant employment and accountancy support services to the recruitment industry and its freelancers”.
