I'm an accountant myself but I must say I couldn't have done without the support of First Umbrella. Their portal is great and makes keeping track of my finances simple, which saves me time. Their tax advice and information resources around specific issues has been spot on and an amazing help.

I was new to contracting. First Umbrella explained everything to me in a clear and straight forward way. They've helped me every step of the way. My dedicated accountant is fantastic and the support and service is outstanding.

I love the portal. I actually looked forward to logging in to 'First Umbrella Live'. I can use my phone to upload my expenses and I know exactly how much to keep aside for tax and what I can pay myself.

I've worked with many accountants over the years. I can confidently say none have come close to providing the same level of personal and professional service as First Umbrella - I only wish I'd found them sooner!

I love having 24/7 visibility of my business finances. The 'live' business bank feed is an excellent feature. My accountant is always there to support me and I can always see my tax and financial position.
