The readymade PSL of our approved providers offers the only insurance backed PSL accreditation on the market and provides our recruitment company members with £5,000,000 of insurance.
As a completely independent organisation we are able to accurately assess any offerings without any commercial pressures.
We would like to make it clear that we do not receive any commissions from providers where you select to use their services.
Professional Passport does not favour any particular operating structure over another and believes that contractors should choose the right operating structure based on their personal circumstances.
We have developed a set of compliance standards to assess and review providers of services to contractors, in the key high risk areas:
- Accountancy services
- Joint Employment
Professional Passport only reviews services for contractors working in the UK. Some providers offer additional services including services for contractors working overseas these services are not currently reviewed by Professional Passport.
Agencies can take reassurance because we provide a unique £5,000,000 insurance for complete protection. To be covered by this the recruitment company must be a member and it only relates to our approved providers as listed on the site.

Carlin Partnership specialise in the ‘Joint Employment’ model.
This is intended for use in situations where:
- CP and an agency will jointly employ workers
- The agency will place them on assignments
- CP handles HR and payroll related functions
- Agency can invoice end client with no VAT which is perfect for GRI and other medical organisations
From some viewpoints, it’s a bit of a half-way house, between conventional umbrella on the one hand, and outsourced payroll on the other.
This model offers opportunity for the agency to reimburse CP for staff costs and employment overhead, without CP having to charge VAT on these items. There are some circumstances in which this may be attractive.
The joint employment model offers a Fixed Worker Pay Rate basis (‘FWPR’).
When an assignment is offered on a FWPR basis, the agency is able to tell the worker exactly what pay rate the worker will receive.
Workers receive a simple clean payslip with no emotional deductions.
