  • After several escalations my issue for this month has finally been sorted out - but the cash was sitting unapplied for 3 weeks.

  • Overpaid Employer's NI via Umbrella - how do I get it back?

    Hi

    Parasol SIPP Contribution Shambles

    Is anyone else experiencing the below issue with Parasol and AJ Bell SIPP contributions this month?

    The forum times you out quite frequently so if you are not posting very frequently you will appear as a guestby default. I tend to only re-log in if I have a comment to post - so most of the time i am just browsing and because I have been timed out I appear as a guest rather than as myself....
