“It makes a refreshing change for companies competing against each other to stand together towards a common goal. We recognise the need for a self-regulating body to drive up standards of compliance. We happily give our stamp of approval for the charter and the work that has been done by AUCAE so far.”

“HMRC sees the formation of any organisation designed to help its members to be tax compliant as a positive development and one fully in keeping with our strategy to support those who wish to be compliant. I hope that we can work together to support our mutual aim of all umbrella companies operating within the law.”
