Founded in 2017, Competex Pro was set up by Charles Fowler, owner of the long-established accountancy firm, Competex, to provide those working in interim, consultancy and contractor roles that would otherwise have been affected by the Off-Payroll Working rules (IR35), with a compliant payroll umbrella solution, enabling them to work independently while being paid under PAYE and in line with the new requirements.
Competex Pro is the only UK payroll umbrella company specialising in looking after management and board level independent professionals, building on the Competex group’s 20+ years of experience looking after senior independent professionals and interim managers.
Amy Fowler, Client Liaison Manager at Competex Pro said: “Competex Pro understands the importance of a trusted and reliable payroll umbrella service for contractors, interim managers and senior independent professionals who IR35 would otherwise catch.
Our highly qualified team has unrivalled experience working with interim agencies and end clients, engaging management and board-level professionals, which sets us apart from other umbrella companies on the market. We’re thrilled to add the Professional Passport accreditation and become an approved provider to support this”.
The Professional Passport accreditation helps to demonstrate the high standards that Competex Pro adheres to across all its processes, policies and procedures. In addition, it shows that Competex Pro is fit for purpose, complies with current government legislation, and adapts to legislative changes.
Crawford Temple at Professional Passport said: ‘The Professional Passport standards go beyond the base requirements of compliance and seek to ensure that all our providers also operate to the highest levels of transparency in the market. Competex Pro have demonstrated this throughout the review process, and we look forward to working with them in the future.’
