1. Contact us
Use our business enquiry form to let us know that you are interested, and provide us with some basic information so that we can respond fully and quickly.
2. Letter of Engagement
We will speak with you about your exact needs, and agree the process of accreditation that is appropriate for your business. Then we’ll sign a Letter of Engagement with you – which details scope of services, fees, timescales, responsibilities, confidentiality undertakings, criteria and other matters.
3. Information sharing and Assessment
We will review your recent Financial Statements and connected communications. From this, a detailed and confidential report (in the form of a scorecard) will be produced that highlights how you would perform against the relevant Fair Tax Mark accreditation standard, together with suggested areas of improvement. This stage normally takes around four to eight weeks, subject to the information required being readily available. The clear suggestions we provide could feed into the production of your next set of Annual Report and Accounts, or lead to the production of a bespoke public documentation that augments your existing Annual Report and Accounts (should you wish to progress more quickly).
4. Licensing and Announcement
As and when reporting, policies and practice pass the Fair Tax Mark threshold, you would be able to use the Fair Tax Mark in public communications for a qualifying period of usually twelve months. A Licence Agreement would be issued and you would then be able to use the Fair Tax Mark logo and related materials in public communications for the qualifying period. We would work together to announce and celebrate your certification via a range of communication channels.
