UK — SPA announces total re-brand

06 April 2010

The Service Providers Association (SPA) today announces a total re-brand of the organisation, now to be known as the Freelancer and Contractor Services Association (FCSA).

The new name and logo are designed to clearly reflect the FCSA's areas of expertise while demonstrating the group's continued focus on representing companies across the sector. The organisation provides employment, payroll tax, accountancy and administrative support and advice to the professional freelance workforce.

In line with the rebrand activity and the Association's ongoing commitment to transparency, the industry leading code of conduct is being made publicly available for the first time. The code of conduct encompasses the broad range of businesses that operate in the service providers sector, including umbrella organisations and businesses providing support services to limited companies.
The code outlines the professional standards that FCSA believe should apply to the sector and is designed to encourage best practice across the industry. It will be available on application and open to view via the Association's new look website www.fcsa.org.uk  from today.

FCSA's Chairman, Stuart Davis comments, "The rebrand and release of the code are vitally important steps forward for the Association, demonstrating our commitment to remove confusion in this complex and vibrant sector, as well as our ongoing growth and development. All of the FCSA's work is designed to benefit our members, their customers and the industry as a whole, which is why we decided to take the unique step of making the code of conduct publicly available."

"As part of the code of conduct process Association members undergo an independent review from one of the 'big four' accountancy firms. This, combined with HMRC's receipt of the documentation, constitutes a unique combination of rigorous independent assessment and business transparency which clearly demonstrate our commitment to driving up professional standards across the industry."
