Both Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd and Churchill Knight Umbrella have successfully passed their annual FCSA compliance review. Having undergone a thorough review from independent professionals, both companies have been able to prove they operate compliantly and in accordance with the FCSA’s strict Codes of Compliance.
The FCSA (The Freelancer and Contractor Services Association)
The FCSA is the UK’s leading professional body dedicated to ensuring the supply chain of temporary workers is ethical and compliant with UK tax law. By applying for FCSA accreditation, contractor accountants and umbrella companies undergo a series of audits and assessments by external organisations – with no stone left unturned. Then, once the assessments have concluded, only the businesses that have proven they abide entirely by the FCSA’s Codes of Compliance will be rewarded with the prestigious FCSA accreditation.
On their official website, the FCSA state that “accreditation is awarded to umbrella employers, contractor accountants (PSC) and CIS payroll providers who can demonstrate the highest industry standards.”

“FCSA accreditation is extremely important to us”
From the very beginning, Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd was founded to provide contractors with a reliable and compliant payroll service. Over the last 20 years, compliance has always been one of the businesses priorities – and offering exceptional customer service. To this day, compliance remains at the forefront of everything we do, and that is why maintaining the prestigious FCSA accreditation is such an exciting achievement.
Tom Edwards, Operations Director at Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd and Churchill Knight Umbrella, said:
“I am delighted that both Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd and Churchill Knight Umbrella have passed their annual review with the FCSA. FCSA accreditation is extremely important to us because we know it’s the best way to showcase our commitment to compliance within our sector. A majority of the recruitment agencies we work with demand that their partnered accountants and umbrella providers have FCSA accreditation because they know this means their candidates will get a dependable service. FCSA accreditation is also seen as a stamp of approval to many workers looking for a company to assist them with accountancy or umbrella payroll.
Passing the annual audit is no mean feat. To successfully have our accreditation renewed, both companies have undergone audits with external professionals, which is something we’ve been delighted to participate with. We’re extremely proud that all parties involved are satisfied that we operate compliantly with HMRC rules and regulations and have our accountancy clients and umbrella employees’ best interests at heart.
I look forward to continuing to work with the FCSA and ensuring the supply chain operates ethically, and in the best interests of contractors, freelancers and agency workers.”
