Welcome to IFCP

The Independent Freelance Contracting Professionals

The mission of the Independent Freelance Contracting Professionals, or the IFCP, is to cultivate the right conditions that enable umbrella companies, contractor accountants and payroll providers to comply fully with industry standards and regulations, and award them the recognised status they deserve for doing so. Our goal is to provide contractors with the most compliant and certified professional organisations in the UK, ensuring they are safe from the repercussions of non-compliant businesses.

Supported by our partners, the IFCP ensures accreditation is awarded to businesses that establish and prove to follow the IFCP Code of Compliance, thereby providing contractors, recruitment agencies and end-hirers with clarity and status whilst operating in the sector.
