What I do

I manage the firm's busy payroll department, serving clients across the UK.

Where I've been

I manage the busy payroll bureau here at HURST.

We process payrolls for clients with employees ranging between 10 and 1300, providing a fully outsourced payroll service, including Processing, BACS submissions, RTI, Auto-enrolment and much more.

What I've learned

Over the past three years the payroll sector has experienced some of the biggest changes in decades.

2012 saw the introduction of RTI and Auto-enrolment and as well as adding more responsibilities to the payroll sector, these changes also brought along a minefield of complicated legislations. As a result of these changes, there has been a noticeable influx of employers choosing to outsource...

Why we're unlike any other accountant

Each client receives a bespoke service, tailored to suit their individual payroll requirements.
