Some more testimonials from our satisfied contractors…
“A specific feature of ICS I like compared to other accountants is that they have commitment, skills and the best service attitude. A benefit of using ICS is that there is reliability in terms of response, level of service and quality. ICS has been a key factor to success, and provides many business services with a great value. ICS’s support has allowed me to focus on the business activities instead of delivery the administration ones – this is an outstanding benefit.”
– Cris G., Engineer, Oil & Gas Industry
“I have been a client at ICS for almost two years now and I am pleased to say the experience has been fantastic.
First and foremost my accounts are dealt with to a very high standard, all deadlines for completing my year end tax returns are met without fail, which is the main concern for me as I adhere to the HM Revenues & Customs rules hence my joining ICS.
I would also like to praise my main point of call Mr Stuart Keep at ICS whom I’ve never met in person but am always welcomed and greeted very professionally via telephone and emails.
Mr Keep’s responses to my enquiries are very prompt and supportive of any concerns I may raise, which to me may seem at times inadequate due to my lack of knowledge in the accounts department but he is always very supportive and deals with all my queries efficiently.
Based on my experience I have always praised the service and been happy to refer the company to friends as a good reference.”

“I have a great working relationship with ICS. They are very knowledgeable and always seem on top of things which leaves me time to get on with managing my workload.”
– Gordon M., Test Analyst
“Pay day is always much anticipated and when something goes wrong it’s good to know that you have a team of professionals who are actively seeking to resolve any problems.
When I recently encountered a problem with a delayed timesheet being submitted to ICS, I emailed them to ask if there was anything that they could do, they sent an email stating that they would respond to my request within 24 hours and true to their word, that’s just what they did.
They emailed me with an update and to my utter astonishment they had resolved the issue entirely and I had been placed on the pay run for that very day.
That is what I call exceeding customer expectations and promoting positive working relationships.
Excellent job – well done ICS.”
– Sandra B., Social Worker, Social Work Industry
“Before joining ICS I had never used an umbrella scheme before so my biggest concern was that I would have to complete my own tax return which I was certain I would do incorrectly. This concern has been completely been resolved as ICS deal with any tax issues for you and also make sure that you are on the right tax code to pay the best amount possible.
One of the best benefits of being a contractor with ICS is that you can be a contractor but still enjoy benefits that are usually only reserved for people on full time contracts such as a workplace pension and holiday pay.
Other benefits of using ICS include being able to send in your expenses in pretty much any format you can which is invaluable when you’re busy and you don’t have time to send them via a spread sheet. ICS also give you plenty of notice about when and how you are going to be paid so any issues can be resolved before you’re paid. The online DOTS system is also a great help as it means you can change things such as your contact details and payment information at any time day or night.
I would definitely recommend ICS to other contractors for a number of reasons but the main ones are that ICS’s customer service is brilliant and since joining any phone calls I’ve made have been answered within a minute. Their staff are also very knowledgeable about what they’re doing and can explain things in easy to understand terms and make sure your problems are fully resolved before hanging up. They also remind you when you’ve forgotten to do something such as make an expenses claim.
Overall very satisfied with ICS.”

“I’ve been using ICS Umbrella for the last year and a half and have found the whole thing easy and simple. They helped me set up as a contractor when I knew nothing about the whole process. They offer great support for customers as being a newbie to the contractor world, I often needed things explaining. They helped me get the most out of my weekly income by ensuring I submit expenses and even have contacted me recently on how to take home more of my income by becoming a Limited Company and are currently helping through that process now. Great service, would recommend to anyone.”
–Steven L., Architectural Technologist
“My biggest concern before joining ICS was paying a lot of tax, the reason why I thought that is because I get paid weekly – I no longer have this concern because Jess has explained it to me which was great. Benefits of using ICS were that the people are so nice and Jess went though everything with me, and that everyone is helpful and organised. I believe that ICS is great and they get back to you if there is outstanding submissions – thank you so much to everyone at ICS who has helped me and processed my timesheets on time.”
– Casini B., Bookings Co-ordinator, Entertainment Industry
“My first time in using an Umbrella Solution and ICS have been a constant support and helped me by explaining things I wasn’t sure about. I have nothing bad to say about ICS… they are doing their job and more.”
– Adebola G., Residential Care Worker, Social Care Industry
“ICS are such a fantastic company to work with. Being new to contracting I had no idea what I was doing or what to expect, but they helped me with all my questions and queries. They respond quickly to any enquiries, any problems never seem to be a hassle, and they ensure payment is in your account the same day which is fantastic. I will continue to use them for as long as I am contracting, I highly recommend them. Special thanks to Jess Piela for being extremely patient!”
