We are very pleased to announce that we have just gained our status as a fully accredited member of the FCSA. A fantastic milestone for our business that highlights our dedication to ensuring compliance in all aspects of our services.
What is the FCSA?
The FCSA is the leading professional body for the temporary labour market. It aims to raise standards and promote supply chain compliance for businesses throughout the UK.
Within the umbrella industry it is know as the ‘gold standard’ mark of a compliant business, highlighting to recruitment agencies and contractors that they are working with a reputable and reliable umbrella supplier.
How do you become an accredited member?
Accreditations are awarded to ‘umbrella employers, contractor accountants and CIS payroll providers who can demonstrate the highest industry standards’.
This is precisely what Exchequer did in order to become accredited. A number of factors went into this, including an independent test from FCSA approved financial and legal assessors where we provided documentary evidence of our compliance with the FCSA Code of Compliance.
We were then audited onsite by both the financial and legal assessors who submitted their recommendations to FCSA who have in turn granted us membership. To ensure our continued compliance with the FCSA’s Code, we will be reviewed on an annual basis moving forward.
As a business which prides itself on compliant processes and procedures, achieving this accreditation is a significant and exciting step for Exchequer Solutions, to be approved by such reputable companies as Saffery Champness and Brabners speaks volumes about our processes and integrity.
This accreditation will bring our business a whole host of benefits, most importantly it confirms our compliance to our agency partners meaning they can trade with us with complete confidence.
