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.
