Following a stringent audit process carried out by independent assessor, Ernst and Young, against the FCSA Code of Compliance, Danbro continue to demonstrate their leading focus on industry standards by sailing through the steps to become an Accredited Member of The FCSA (Freelancer and Contractor Services Association).
The FCSA is the UK’s leading professional membership body with a dedication to promoting supply chain compliance within the temporary labour market.
Standards for accreditation with the FCSA are the most rigorous and comprehensive within the industry, encompassing thorough reviews and testing of company policies and processes, operational activities, financials and the business structure which supports services offered to clients.
Damian Broughton MBE, Executive Chairman of the Danbro Group, on becoming an accredited member said: “We’re delighted to announce our full accreditation to the FCSA. For many years we have seen and supported the activities of the FCSA as an associate member.
“Danbro has always sought to be a contributor and proponent of ‘best practice’, aspiring to adhere to the spirit of legislation, as well as complying with all technical aspects. Gaining accreditation enables us to contribute more widely with all stakeholders in the flexible and contingent workforce market. We’re proud to work with the FCSA and all its members in promoting its values and championing the importance of compliance within our sector”
What it means to our umbrella employees, accountancy clients and agency partners
With almost 20 years’ experience working with contractors, freelancers and businesses, Danbro dedicate themselves to providing the best advice, information and solutions.
James Burrows, Director of Danbro Workforce Solutions added: “We admire the professional approach and extremely high standards set by FCSA, which we see gaining more traction and having a positive impact across our sector. We are fully behind their mission to raising standards and promoting supply chain compliance for the temporary labour market.
“Being endorsed by FCSA and becoming a fully accredited member through an independent audit process provides clients and stakeholders with the necessary assurances to trust in the Danbro brand and have confidence in our ability to deliver. In a sector that lacks regulation, I believe FCSA are not only setting a benchmark, but they are defining excellence across our industry and we are excited about what we can achieve together.”
On Danbro’s accreditation, Julia Kermode, FCSA Chief Executive said: “It’s fantastic news that Danbro has been able to meet the extremely high standards required to become a fully accredited member of FCSA having previously been an associate member. It is no mean feat. Danbro is a first-class company and I look forward to continuing to work with Damian and his team to raise standards in our sector.
“FCSA accredited membership is the quality mark that every freelancer, 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.”
Formed in 1999 by co-founders Damian Broughton MBE and Helen Broughton MBE, the Danbro Group provides accountancy, taxation, umbrella employment and CIS solutions to businesses, freelancers, contractors and sub-contractors throughout the UK, supporting business growth and careers to create a future full of opportunity.
