Approved Providers

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
  • Umbrella
  • Joint Employment
  • CIS

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.

Churchill Knight Umbrella

Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd is not like any other contractor accountant and PAYE umbrella company. The business was started in 1998 by John Payne and his wife Louise. John was an IT contractor who decided to start a specialist contractor accountancy and umbrella service because there were no contractor focused providers available. Since the first day of operation, John and Louise have remained partners and owners of Churchill Knight, making us a family run business created by a contractor, specifically for contractors.

Churchill Knight Umbrella will provide your candidates with a leading umbrella service. Their administrative burden will be minimal and our dedicated team will take care of their PAYE payroll. Your candidates will receive all the necessary insurances to work with total peace of mind, as well as employee benefits including Sick Pay.

When you partner with Churchill Knight Umbrella, your agency will receive:

  • A tailored partnership – no two partnerships are the same with our recruitment agencies.
  • A fully HMRC compliant payroll provider.
  • Superior assistance – you will be assigned your own dedicated BDM.
