Sterling achieves Professional Passport accreditation
In order to be accepted as an approved provider Sterling has undergone a comprehensive compliance review of all their processes and procedures to ensure they align to HMRC guidelines and comply with all the relevant legislation.
Professional Passport Approved Providers Accreditation is the only compliance review that is backed and guaranteed by a £5,000,000 insurance policy against MSC Debt Transfer for the recruitment company members of Professional Passport.
Ian Black managing director of Sterling, commented, “We are delighted to have been approved by Professional Passport to be one of their approved providers. We have always provided a transparent, compliant and efficient service to contractors and recruiters alike. Being accepted by Professional Passport who are widely seen as the most respected and requested stamp of compliance across the market gives us great satisfaction to know that we are achieving the high standards we set out to. Recent months and the changes to onshore legislation have been challenging for the industry as a whole, and to achieve approved status at this time is a great strength to Sterling. This independent confirmation of our compliance will provide further comfort to our recruitment partners.”
Crawford Temple managing director of Professional Passport, said, “Sterling is a great addition to our range of approved umbrella providers. As a major provider of solutions in the construction sector they have recently undergone a major transformation in their business as a direct result of the new onshore employment intermediaries legislation. Having worked closely with them through this period they have consistently demonstrated the high standards we require of all our approved providers.”
