Chartergates Verified launched…

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new umbrella compliance certification – Chartergates Verified.  Umbrella companies that have been audited and passed by Chartergates Legal Services will be able to carry the Chartergates Verified logo and market themselves as Chartergates Verified.

If you’re compliant we’ll certify it in writing…

For umbrella companies, proving their compliance to clients is of paramount importance.  However, simply assuring clients that you are compliant is rarely enough.  Clients want detail and may have a concern about a particular area of compliance.  This is another reason why the Chartergates Verified certificate of compliance is vital to umbrella companies.  If an umbrella company passes the audit then they will receive a certificate of compliance.  This certificate will not simply verify an umbrella’s compliance.  It will detail the particular areas that have been reviewed and the fact that they are compliant in those areas.  This gives your clients (in particular employment agencies) the detailed compliance verification that they are looking for.

The road to verification…

Being verified by Chartergates Legal Services will be the ultimate badge of compliance.  With this in mind it does not come easy and will not be available to anyone other than the best umbrella companies.  In order to receive verification, an umbrella company will need to undergo a thorough review of their practices and procedures.  Following the review Chartergates will provide a confidential report outlining any areas of concern and suggested remedial measures.  Where the measures are taken and we are satisfied as to compliance then the certificate of compliance will be issued.  Where, after the initial review there are no areas of concern then the certificate of compliance will be issued without the need for remedial work.  For details of the areas that a full verification review will cover follow this link.

Bespoke verification…

At Chartergates we pride ourselves on providing bespoke advice rather than the off-the-shelf ‘solutions’ that are rarely sufficient.  We have taken the same ethos with the Chartergates Verified certification.  Not all umbrella companies are the same and therefore not all umbrellas will require a review in all of the areas listed on our website.  Furthermore, you might have a client that only requires assurance in a particular area of compliance and therefore only want verification for this particular area.  Chartergates can conduct an aspect review into the particular areas of concern only.  Of course, for a full certificate of compliance a full review will be required.

Affiliate Members…

If you are an Chartergate Affiliate and are benefiting from the best day to day advice then this does not mean that you automatically receive the Chartergates Verified certification.  However, it does mean that you can be among the first to undergo the review process and the fees for doing so will be significantly reduced compared to the fees payable by non-members.

Not all umbrellas are equal…

All umbrellas will say they are compliant but that doesn’t mean that they are.  In order to stand out from the crowd and prove you are better than the average umbrella you will need the ability to provide your clients with compliance peace of mind.  Chartergates Verified is the certification that can enable you to do this.
