FCSA welcomes newest full member
SmartWork has been awarded full membership of The Freelancer and Contractor Services Association (FCSA), demonstrating that it fully complies with the trade body’s strict code of compliance.
To qualify as a full member, a firm undergoes rigorous testing carried out by professionally qualified independent experts who are regulated accountants and solicitors with significant knowledge of the sector. The review is evidence-based and includes assessment of the applicant’s business structure, financials, services, operations, policies and processes. The findings are shared with HMRC in an act of unparalleled transparency.
SmartWork has over a decade of knowledge and experience within the contracting sector, providing a fully compliant solution to safeguard the interests of its umbrella employees, recruitment business and other partners.
On becoming a member of FCSA, Neil Kane, sales manager at SmartWork, said, “We are delighted to be joining FCSA and to be recognised and endorsed for our market-leading working standards. The Association echoes our own corporate values and commitment to best practice, which give our clients reassurance that they are working with a highly professional and fully compliant company.
