Modern Slavery Statement

This statement is made pursuant to Modern Slavery legislation in the jurisdictions that Frontier Software operates setting out the steps taken by Frontier Software to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains.


Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Frontier Software has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all business relationships, which includes implementing policies and procedures to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking taking place within the business or our supply chain.

Supply Chains

Our supply chains include but are not limited to premises, hardware providers, maintenance services and stationery suppliers. We have reviewed the risks that these supply chains can present and we expect our suppliers and contractors to demonstrate a zero tolerance approach to exploitation. Any supplier found not complying with the provisions of the Act will have their contract terminated.

Further Steps 

Going forward, Frontier Software is committed to continuously strengthening our due diligence processes in relation to our supply chain to identify where modern slavery and human trafficking risks may exist in our business and supply chains, and to continuously improve and develop our policies, procedures and processes to address those risks. 

We continue to inform our staff about these issues and raise their awareness of how to recognise and respond to indicators of human rights abuses.

Approval for statement

This statement was approved by Frontier Software Chairman, Michael Howard on 30th June 2021.

Statement on stakeholder relationships made under Section 172(1) of the Companies Act

Section 172 of the Companies Act 2006 (“the Act”) requires the directors to promote the success of a company for the benefit of its stakeholders. As a limited company whose shares are held privately, the directors consider the key stakeholders of the Group to be its shareholders, employees and customers and the wider community that the Group serves.

The key strategic decisions for the board relate to expansion and growth and both short and long term profitability. When these transactions, or any other material transaction or decision, are considered the board has regard to its wider obligations under s172 of the Act.

We continue to support our customers with the development of new software modules and payroll services and by extending our software and services to other countries.

Employees are regularly consulted through engagement surveys and meetings and their feedback is important to guiding future decisions regarding the Group.

During the year, with the impact of the COVID pandemic, the directors have been primarily focused on ensuring the safety and wellbeing of its staff, and supporting the needs of its customers to work remotely from their normal place of work.

This report was approved by the board on 17 March 2021 and signed on its behalf.
