FCSA accredited umbrella companies and contractor accountants
The umbrellacompanies.org.uk Team is committed to encouraging contractors, freelancers and agency workers to use a compliant umbrella company for their payroll. While a majority of umbrella companies are perfectly compliant and will process your pay in accordance with HMRC’s rules and regulations, some are promoting tax avoidance schemes or disguised remuneration, and engaging with such companies could land you in serious trouble.
The FCSA accredited umbrella companies and contractor accountants table below shows a list of UK-based umbrella companies and contractor accountants that have obtained an FCSA accreditation (be it for ‘Limited Company Advisor’ or for ‘Umbrella Employment’). We still recommend you double check each company has the prestigious FCSA accreditation at the time you decide to engage with them – just to be sure.
Visit the official FCSA members directory for more information.
A quick summary of the FCSA (Freelancer and Contractor Services Association)
The FCSA is the UK’s most recognised professional body that is dedicated to ensuring the supply chain of temporary workers is compliant with UK tax law. For years, obtaining FCSA accreditation has been a priority of umbrella companies and contractor accountants that have been desperate to showcase their commitment to compliance within their sector.
To obtain FCSA accreditations, members must show they operate in accordance with HMRC’s rules and regulations, and their internal processes are ethical. It’s vital that companies always put the temporary workers first, and they abide by the FCSA’s strict Codes of Compliance.
Once a business has earned FCSA accreditation, it cannot afford to take its foot off the gas. Every year, FCSA members are audited and assessed to ensure they remain compliant and customer-focused. There is no room for complacency.
