The Freelancer & Contractor Services Association (FCSA) is delighted to announce that Clarity Umbrella has achieved FCSA Accreditation for their umbrella employment services.
Clarity Umbrella was established by an experienced team of umbrella company professionals offering a payroll solution for contractors deemed to be ‘inside IR35’ and those who do not wish to operate their own limited company but instead want the ability to be paid via an umbrella through PAYE. They strive to provide the best customer service for all clients – contractors, agencies and end hirers – ensuring clarity and compliance at all times.
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 Accreditation demonstrates to contractors, recruitment businesses, and end hirers 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.
On becoming FCSA Accredited, Lucy Smith, director at Clarity Umbrella said: “We are so pleased to have achieved this accreditation and hope that this will now give our clients the comfort they seek on our compliance with HMRC guidelines and the FCSA’s codes of practice. Clarity is what our business is all about and becoming an FCSA Accredited Member will only help to confirm this to contractors and agencies alike.”
FCSA’s chief executive, Phil Pluck added: “FCSA Accreditation is something to be proud of and I am delighted that Clarity Umbrella has successfully met the extremely high standards required to become a fully Accredited Member of the FCSA. I look forward to working them to continue our efforts in raising standards and supporting the UK’s temporary workforce.”
