A Governing Body set up to regulate and problem solve a tarnished business sector, involving regular consultation with many peers from the House Of Lord’s. We are the first to create and implement a tailor made Insurance for pilgrimages in conjunction with Towergate Insurance.
We have recently compiled a report : ” The Government is unaware that £315 Million of trading is being conducted unregulated and untaxed” . This report was requested by Prime Minister David Cameron and he has written to us thanking us for the report and has appreciated it. We are now planning to liase with Government Departments to implement regulation and set procedures in place to gain accurate financial details via our cloud based back office systems. Further details shall be available on our web page around December 2015
