The Freelancer & Contractor Services Association (FCSA) has announced that JMK Group UK have achieved FCSA accreditation for its compliant umbrella employment, CIS/self-employed contractor provider and limited company advisor services.
As the UK’s leading trade body for the professional employment services sector, the FCSA rigorously assessed the group against its compliance codes and models in an independent audit.
Having passed all three tests, the group joins the ranks of more than 70 other FCSA members, a register which provides reassurances to the wider supply chain that they’re working with a compliant and trustworthy business.
With over 20 years of experience working within the industry, JMK Group UK supports hundreds of recruitment agencies across a range of services, including Back Office Support (BOS) and Funding.
To ensure members are operating both professionally and ethically within UK tax, employment and regulatory laws, all members are evaluated on their processes, operations and policies and continually reassessed on a regular basis.
Subsequent accreditation to FCSA membership provides the rest of the supply chain with assurances the umbrella companies, limited company advisors, professional employment organisations and CIS contractor providers are safe and compliant to work with.
Jamil Elkorchi, Operations Director at JMK Group UK, said: “We are delighted to have passed the FCSA accreditation, after 20 years in business this achievement further underlines JMK Group UK’s ongoing commitment to providing services of the highest quality to both our agency partners and contractors alike. A huge thank you to our compliance team and everyone at JMK Group UK that has helped along the way, this achievement is yours.
“We now look forward to joining FCSA’s existing members, working together to shape the industry while continuing to set the highest standards of compliance, transparency and service.”
FCSA chief executive, Chris Bryce added: “Following the FCSA’s rigorous assessment, we’re really pleased that JMK Group UK have passed as accredited members; demonstrating both industry best-practice and compliant standards.
“When they become accredited, members agree to full adherence to our charter. This outlines our pre-requisite benchmark standards, mandating that businesses must operate both ethically and legally. In addition, FCSA accredited members have been audited to confirm that they adhere to the FCSA compliance code – a stringent stress-test of their business operations as a clear commercial differentiator.”
“Along with our members, we always strive for the highest levels of compliance and transparency within the industry. JMK Group UK joining as members will only make the voice for compliant standards grow even stronger.”
As the industry-leading trade association, the FCSA works to support and protect the interests of the sector and the flexible workforce.
