We’re delighted to announce that our core contractor accounting brands, SG Accounting and SG Umbrella have been added to the accredited members list of The Freelancer and Contractor Services Association (FCSA). To become accredited, we’ve had to undergo an independent and rigorous assessment of our business services, operations, policies and processes, all of which have been examined to ensure adherence to FCSA compliance standards.
FCSA Chief Executive, Julia Kermode comments
“Congratulations to everyone at SG Professional Services Group on achieving FCSA Accreditation. Passing the rigorous assessment to become an Accredited Member is not easy and therefore testament to their hard work and commitment. Any recruitment agency or contractor looking to engage the SG Group can be rest assured that they are in safe hands.”
What does this accreditation mean?
FCSA accreditation demonstrates to our contractor clients and recruitment businesses that we adhere to rigorous compliance standards and are acting both professionally and ethically within the UK tax, employment and regulatory laws. A copy of the audit report is also sent to HMRC, and we must prove our compliance annually.
We are very proud of being able to demonstrate this high standard of compliance in the professional employment services sector and would encourage all contractors to ensure that they are working with an FCSA accredited provider.
