ForeTwo Group has joined The Freelancer and Contractor Services Association (FCSA) as an accredited member. FCSA accreditation demonstrates to freelancers, contractors and recruitment businesses that members are acting both professionally and ethically within the UK tax, employment and regulatory laws. Coupled with financial stability tests, FCSA accreditation is proof that professional businesses can take the lead in delivering the highest levels of industry standards.
ForeTwo Group was co-founded by managing director Jeff Blakemore and director Robert Easton in 2017 to offer a range of contractor umbrella payroll services and contractor accountant services to the UK’s flexible workforce. The company comprises a team of experienced professionals who together boast some 90 years of industry experience from the recruitment, contractor payroll and contractor accountancy sectors.
On becoming FCSA accredited, MD Jeff Blakemore said: “We’re delighted to have secured FCSA accreditation at such an early stage in the company’s history and it’s a fantastic start to 2019. Our name, ForeTwo, is synonymous with our two core values which is to put service and compliance at the heart of everything we do. These values complement everything that FCSA stands for too and we are looking forward to being part of a professional body that is recognised as the gold standard in the industry.”
To become an accredited member, applicants must undergo an independent and rigorous assessment of their business services, operations, policies and processes, all of which are examined to ensure adherence to FCSA compliance standards.
FCSA’s chief executive, Julia Kermode added: “I am very pleased to welcome ForeTwo on board as our newest member and would like to congratulate Jeff Blakemore and his team for meeting the extremely high standards required to become a fully accredited member of the FCSA. I know that Jeff and everyone at ForeTwo is extremely passionate about our industry and committed to driving up standards and supporting career contractors who are looking for a first class service.”
