IPS Administration has become the latest firm to become accredited by The Freelancer and Contractor Services Association (FCSA). 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.
IPS Administration was co-founded in 2004 by director Michael Hall to provide professional, no-nonsense umbrella employment and CIS services to UK based contractors and recruiters.
“IPS Administration stands for professionalism and compliance and we are delighted to have passed FCSA’s rigorous assessment process to become an accredited member for our umbrella and CIS services,” said Hall. “Being endorsed and recognised by FCSA, the leading professional body in our industry, is a welcome reward for the commitment and hard work the IPS team has put in over the years. We look forward to being part of the FCSA team to drive up standards and provide contractors and recruiters with a first-class service.”
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: “It is no easy process to become FCSA accredited and I would like to congratulate the IPS team for passing our rigorous assessment and welcome them on board as our newest member. FCSA accredited membership is the quality mark that every contractor and recruiter should look for when considering a professional services company, safe in the knowledge that they will receive a reliable, responsible, and ethical service.”
