Leading accountants expand in line with continued growth
PPS Chartered Accountants, Wiltshire’s premier accountants for both commercial and private clients, is expanding its payroll department as a response to an increased demand for its services from within the Wiltshire region.
With the increase in payroll compliance placing an ever greater burden on companies, PPS Chartered Accountants aims to take that stress away. The enhanced department is now able to meet an even wider range of requirements, for an extended range of business types – from limited companies to sole traders. Payroll packages are available in weekly, monthly and quarterly formats.
The new enhanced Payroll set up is led by Becky Day and Lorna Reilly, two experienced payroll professionals. Becky, who has previously fulfilled roles at Johnson Matthey and Greene King, holds a Practitioner Certificate in Payroll through the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals. Lorna is an experienced Accounts & Payroll Manager who has previously worked at Fish Brothers Swindon Limited, as well as Jackie Kerr Recruitment and Network Rail.
Among the expanded services offered by payroll from PPS Chartered Accountants are organising PAYE codes from HMRC, producing departmental analysis reports and auto-enrolment compliance including setup and submissions.
The enlarged department is helping companies organise their financial applications and government entitlements, including FPS/EPS Submissions to HMRC for CIS, statutory payments, apprenticeship levy and employment allowance. PPS Chartered Accountants uses Sage 50 Payroll to process the payroll, with pension module for regular auto-enrolment assessment if needed. The department sends out all data fully encrypted, and password protected,
Companies can rely on the department to keep abreast with any new legislation or changes to ensure that they meet all regulatory requirements. Payroll from PPS Chartered Accountants is also meeting requirements including ad-hoc reports and the reconciling of PAYE/CIS accounts.
Along with the new offerings, the PPS Chartered Accountants Payroll service incorporates all the payroll essentials which are key for day-to-day business operations, taking into account any starters, leavers, tax code changes, amendments, attachment of earnings orders, statutory payments (SSP, SMP, SPP, SAP, shared SMP/SPP), student loans, cycle to work schemes, salary sacrifice schemes and leaver related payments.
The department generates e-banking files and specific pension files for upload, running required reports and generating P32s. Year-end processing and generation of P60s are provided, as well as filing and record keeping in line with legislative requirements.
Sally Holland, a partner at PPS Chartered Accountants, said: “The expansion of our new payroll department is a reflection of the tremendous growth which the service has seen over the last few months. Our main objective is client satisfaction, and we aim for a 48-hour turnaround on requirements, but can usually achieve project completion within 24 hours.”
