Parasol has been a great support to me in my contracting career. I first heard about umbrella companies in 2006 and after a shaky start in contracting, I joined Parasol and never looked back. Parasol’s undivided attention on the phone is great and the online portal is quick and easy, making the process of submitting my timesheets and claiming expenses extremely straightforward. The portal continues to improve and my weekly pay slips are now laid out very clearly, and are easy to print. A few years ago I was considering going Limited, and I got in touch with Parasol’s sister company, ClearSky Contractor Accounting. They were very helpful and assessed me according to my recent record with Parasol. In the end, I decided that limited company wasn’t the best option for me, but I would recommend Parasol and ClearSky to anybody looking to further their contracting career.
Your customer service has been excellent, the speed of answering my questions amazingly quick and the whole experience of using Parasol, at a time when I was under stress due to having been unemployed for a few weeks, made the transition easy and without any complications, which I really do thank you for. If this is the standard that everyone receives, let me assure you that you are doing everything perfectly.
I have been working with Parasol on a few different contracts since 2012 and I have been very satisfied right from my initial conversation. I cannot say enough how everyone at Parasol is extremely friendly, welcoming and always helpful. I was very pleasantly surprised how easy it was to set up an account; Parasol did everything for me and explained all the steps. The website is so easy to use, beautifully designed and user friendly. It’s an absolute pleasure to deal with everyone at Parasol, they always put me at ease, help with all my queries and issues and make me feel welcome at all times! Thank you for your hard work, I am aware of it every minute I speak with you and I’m grateful, as you’re a model of what a customer service should be like!
