In others' words
I retired in 2010 as I wanted to spend more time with my family. However, I received numerous requests from former colleagues to assist in various projects, so rather than set up a new company, I contacted Parasol. Parasol has enabled me to have the best of both worlds. Much of my work I do from home, so I’m able to combine work and family successfully, with flexibility around working hours. Being able to log timesheets and expenses online makes administration work easy. When the odd problem does arise, Parasol are only an email or a phone call away and an acceptable solution has always been reached. For people like me who prefer to “wind down” on retirement rather than a sudden stop, I would certainly recommend using Parasol. It’s a great flexible way of minimising administration time and costs, so you can concentrate on the “core business” and family.
I was first introduced to Parasol by a recruitment company and I was pleased with their recommendation. From my very first phone call with Parasol I could tell that I was dealing with a professional and reliable company. The team answered all my queries and clearly explained the processes involved in becoming a contractor. Any worries I had immediately melted away. Every time I’ve dealt with Parasol I’ve had quick responses, clear direction and the person at the other end of the phone has always been polite and patient. I never dread getting in touch. In addition, Parasol’s intuitive online portal allows me to submit my timesheets and expenses with ease, meaning I can concentrate on my assignments.
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.
