I decided in 2012 that after 30 years working for global blue chip companies that I wanted a new challenge in life. I believed that my wealth of experience would be very useful to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their suppliers, so I looked into becoming a contractor.
After a while working with an umbrella company, I started to think that I could make more money by going Limited and contacted ClearSky for help. I believe that many people are put off setting up their own business because they are scared of what it may entail.
Getting set up with ClearSky was far easier than expected, with their expert team taking a lot of the pressure off my shoulders. They were particularly useful when it came to filling out all the required documentation – something which had always baffled me in the past. In their hands, everything seemed so easy that I wish I had done it sooner!
On a day-to-day basis I have a strong working relationship with my personal accountant, who is always helpful in providing support and answers to my questions. My monthly company accounts are also prepared and released in good time.
ClearSky provides me with an excellent level of service and always sends me notifications about when all my documentation is due. This takes all the strain and pressure off, leaving me free to concentrate on my company activities.
