UNDP Climate Change project – Costa Rica
Consultant nationality: Australian
Sector: Climate and Environment
Country of service: Costa Rica
Having subscribed to Hubconsult in 2016, Conrad has both bid on projects using Hubconsult as his corporate vehicle, and has also invoiced his client using Hubconsult, UNDP to implement a project in Costa Rica.
“I didn’t want the responsibility of setting up a company, paying bookkeepers to keep on top of monthly accounts, so Hubconsult has allowed me to avoid all of that. Anyway, it has been much cheaper just to let Hubconsult take care of that for me, so I have been able to spend more time on my clients and myself! Working as a consultant for different international organisations, being paid in either US$, €, £, or even Aus$, it is great that Hubconsult allows me to invoice and get paid in these different currencies without losing lots of fees in currency conversions. Probably the best thing though is that I can bid on a project on my own or in a team through Hubconsult which is already structured efficiently for my consulting business.”
Textile startup – Romania
Consultant nationality: Romanian
Country of service: International
Adina operates a successful textile business called Designer for Kids. Hubconsult also supports this small business in its efforts to support children in need.
“I am interested in using Hubconsult to market my product around the world. By managing where I realise my margin, Hubconsult allows me to invest in new advertising channels and higher quality manufacturing processes and remain competitive. Every investment will bring more business, new clients and increase value for the brand. Having my accounts online with Xero accounting is also a great – I was going to subscribe to Xero anyway but it is included as part of the Hubconsult subscription in multiple currencies. For international transactions this tool is a must have!”

“the great thing about Hubconsult is that it allows me to use a company without having to run my own – much more cheaply, and I don’t have to worry about setting up a company, accounts, auditing, filing and so on – so it also saves me a lot of time too. I can invoice and get paid in different currencies which go through the company smoothly every month.”
