Payme passes FCSA Accreditation with flying colours

Payme is today celebrating achieving FCSA Accreditation for its umbrella employment and CIS payroll services, having passed a rigorous review of its business services, operations, policies, and processes with flying colours.

Accreditation demonstrates to freelancers, contractors, and recruitment businesses that members are acting both professionally and ethically within the UK tax, employment, and regulatory laws.  Coupled with financial stability tests, FCSA Accreditation is proof that professional businesses can take the lead in delivering the highest levels of industry standards.

Payme specialises in providing employed umbrella and CIS (Construction Industry Scheme) contracting options for temporary/interim workers and contractors.  With over 9 years of trading history, Payme has supported both agency partners and contractors through their highly experienced back office team based in Wetherby, Yorkshire, and field-based national customer service managers.

On becoming a fully Accredited Member of FCSA, John Patrick, Payme Director said: “Payme are delighted to have gained FCSA Accreditation. It demonstrates that our primary goal remains, as it has always been, to offer only compliant and robust contracting options ensuring both the agency and contractors we work with have the knowledge and comfort that they are dealing with a business that meets all the current legislative requirements. Our compliance procedures are second-to-none and we believe this accreditation supports that.

“The FCSA works closely with both government and the REC to ensure industry views and concerns are heard at the highest level, and this was a major factor in Payme’s decision to apply for accreditation. As the REC is for the recruitment industry, the FCSA is the backbone of the umbrella contracting market and we look forward to working closely with them to protect and promote this important contracting option for the recruitment industry and our contractors,” added John.

Julia Kermode, FCSA’s chief executive added: “It is fantastic news that Payme has been able to meet the extremely high standards required to become a fully Accredited Member of FCSA.  It is no mean feat passing our rigorous assessment process. Payme is a first-class company and I look forward to continuing working with John and his team to raise standards in our sector.

“FCSA accredited membership is the quality mark that every freelancer, contractor and recruiter should look for when considering a professional services company, safe in the knowledge that they will receive a reliable, responsible, and ethical service.”
