Professional Passport- Compliance

Professional Passport was formed in 2007 as a direct result of The Managed Service Company Legislation. The simple idea was to carry out the most comprehensive compliance due diligence checks on umbrella and accountancy service providers and allow recruitment companies to rely on these whilst at the same time protecting them from potential liabilities.

At outset it was recognised that with potential liabilities being so large more than a verbal reassurance would be required by recruitment companies which is why Professional Passport provides £5,000,000 insurance to all their recruitment company members against debt transfer under Managed Service Company Legislation. Today Professional Passport are still the only insurance backed compliance verification in the market.

As the market has grown and many changes have been introduced Professional Passport has remained the leader in service provider compliance and sets the standards across the sector.

Professional Passport:
• The leading independent specialist service provider compliance company.
• The only insurance backed compliance accreditation - £5,000,000 cover for our recruitment company members.
