Professional Passport working to raise the standards
See our list of audited contractor umbrella and accountancy service providers

Professional Passport is a completely independent organisation and as such is 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 for them based on their personal circumstances.

Professional Passport only audits Umbrella, CIS and Accountancy Service solutions for contractors working in the UK. Some providers offer additional solutions including services for contractors working overseas, these services are not currently audited by Professional Passport.

Contractors can take reassurance from the fact that Professional Passport can also be liable under the debt transfer rules. This fact ensures that we always operate to the highest standard and will only deal with providers that we believe to be compliant; and just to reiterate we do not take any commissions from providers where you select to use their services.

Churchill Knight

Churchill Knight Umbrella

Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd is not like any other contractor accountant. 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 is the perfect PAYE payroll for contractors, especially contractors in the public sector, first time contractors and contractors who do not want their own limited company.

When you join Churchill Knight Umbrella, you can be assured of the following:

  • Unlimited free advice and support
  • Daily payroll so your candidates will be paid on time
