  • Provision and/or upload of client bank payment files
  • Inform clients of their PAYE liability each month/quarter, processing the payment of client PAYE liability to HMRC where agreed
  • Provision of payroll journals to clients
  • End to end auto enrolment management for clients

All applicants must have relevant experience of working in a busy 'start to finish' payroll department and have excellent attention to detail, organisational skills and be capable of working with minimal supervision to meet tight deadlines.
