In others' words

My first encounter with Parasol wasn’t the most conventional. I first heard about them through my wife who was working with the CEO at the time and she had nothing but good things to say. So, when I decided to leap in to contracting five years ago, Parasol was the firm choice. The communication level has always been fantastic. Parasol’s team is friendly and attentive on the phone and no matter what contract length, Parasol has supported me all the way and I never feel forgotten. Deciding to make a change in your career can be daunting, but the easy process, intuitive online portal and quick action if there’s ever been a problem, has made contracting a lot easier and I can’t recommend them enough. The only consistent bit about contracting is working with Parasol and I love it!

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.

I have been with Parasol since 2005 and after speaking with Parasol’s friendly and knowledgeable team, I felt confident they would be the right choice. If I have any problems or queries, I know that a quick phone call is all I need to help solve any issue. When I hear “I’ll ring you back” it doesn’t fill me with dread! More recently, Parasol suggested moving my contracting activities to a limited company under their sister company, ClearSky Accounting. The moving process does require a few steps, but Clearsky made the transition as smooth as possible. The on-boarding team were really helpful and I was allocated a personal accountant who now looks after me. I’ve not been operating like this for long, but the early signs look good and I hope this relationship will be as long and successful as I had with Parasol.
