Where a contractor operates through their own limited company organisations are required to make checks on the company.
The basic company checks include:
- Confirming the company is registered with Companies House
- Confirming the registered office address
- Confirming the company is active
Professional Passport provide these checks for our members: contractor, agency, end client and provider. The unique validation certificate produced when an contractor successfully validates their company can be simply authenticated by other members using the certificate authentication process.
BERR have also confirmed that, in their opinion, these checks meet the agency's obligations under The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003.
