FCSA Accreditation & Compliance

Our Commitment to Compliance

In an industry where compliance is increasingly important, we give complete peace of mind to contractors and recruitment agencies alike.

For 20 years, Crest Plus has provided highly compliant payment support services to limited company contractorsUmbrella contractors and those working in the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS).

We are accredited members of the Freelancer and Contractor Services Association (FCSA) and are committed to adhering to its Codes of Compliance to uphold the very highest standards of compliance and best practice in the industry.

Every contractor who joins Crest Plus undergoes our industry-leading Contractor Assessment to help determine which working options are available to them, and which is best suited to their particular circumstances.

All of our systems and processes are designed around compliance, ensuring Crest Plus, the contractors we support and our recruitment agency partners are fully compliant. As accredited members of the FCSA, we have been independently tested and the audit disclosed to HMRC.
