FCSA accreditation is recognised as the industry’s compliance gold standard. It is rigorous and stringent and annual assessments are carried out independently by nationally renowned professional service firms.

 Accreditation is awarded to umbrella employers, limited company advisors, and self-employed/CIS contractor providers who can demonstrate the highest industry standards.

As a service provider, accreditation will provide assurance to agencies, end hirers, and contractors 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.

For end hirers, ensuring that your contingent workforce uses an accredited professional employment service provider helps to mitigate risk and ensures your supply chain is as robust as it can be.
