After the board of directors of the group had finished voting Allison emerged as the clear winner for the prestigious award. Her Job Title of Finance Manager does little to describe the amount of and variety of work that Allison manages to take on during any particular week.

Operations Director Neil Armitage said “She has been with the company for 7 years and knows the systems and the people inside out. There’s certainly not a single day goes past without most of us seeking out Allison’s advice on any number of matters from staff payroll to insurance through to HR. She is a very deserving recipient of the award and the board are pleased to be able to recognise her contribution to our success”

Huge congratulations to our partners Kingsbridge on their victorious win at the APSCo Awards for Excellence 2016: Affiliate Member of the Year.

This is well deserved recognition by APSCo for Kingsbridge who consistently provide our limited contractors with outstanding service and comprehensive cover at competitive prices.

Kingsbridge Contractor Insurance - hot on the heels of their last award

Hot on the heels of their last award our chosen insurance partner Kingsbridge Contractor Insurance has now been honoured as the Affiliate Member of the Year at the 2016 APSCo Awards for Excellence.

Their specialist insurance packages aimed at contractors were part of the services that won them the nod from the APSCo judges

Thomas Wynne from Kingsbridge said the company are “working with more recruiters than ever. With non-standard terms becoming the norm, and hirers exerting more control than ever before, the days in which a recruiter could accept no responsibility for any acts, errors, or omissions committed by the worker they supplied are long gone. Kingsbridge are there to help recruiters and make them aware of the risks they face. Many recruiters run a list of preferred suppliers for accountancy and umbrella service providers in order to ensure their contractors’ affairs are managed compliantly at all times, but many do not have an insurance partner ready to help manage the risk which arises from placing contractors.”

As an APSCo affiliate member we wish to extend our congratulations once more to Kingsbridge Contractor Insurance for this richly deserved win.

We are delighted to announce that Daniel Moss has won the Practice Excellence Awards for the many new initiatives he helped implement at Umbrella Accountants.

Up against some stiff competition, Daniel won the award as a result of his constant commitment to innovation and his work on our online Self-Assessment Tax Return completion pack.

The Practice Excellence Awards judges agreed with our submission that Daniel is “a model technology-led accountant, making sure he ensures compliance while embracing new ideas and technology”
