Payroll Manager Rebecca Gargini-Hill (pictured) said: “We understand the stresses and strains of running a business and our mission is to make life easier for the many businesses we work with.
“We have a wealth of experience of dealing with businesses of all shapes and sizes, from director-only to large companies with many employees. Arrangements can be based on weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis – all hassle-free, accurate and bang on time.”
Currently the firm is offering local businesses a free Payroll Health Check to review their current set up and make sure their working practices are efficient and processes are up to date.
