We are a small, friendly team and together we offer our clients a personalised, efficient and professional outsourced payroll and human resources service. We take a very personable approach and meet every prospective client, to ensure we understand their particular requirements, as well as giving them an opportunity to see who they are working with.
So, let’s introduce you to our team:
Julie: Director – Payroll and P11D
Julie’s career in payroll started in 1986, when she worked in an office learning her trade from the ground up. Through hard work, formal training and the determination to succeed, she launched JLP Payroll Services in 2003. Her professional, methodical approach and attention to detail have provided a strong platform for a wide range of clients, from owner-managers to companies with over 500 employees. She relishes the challenges of complying with rapidly evolving legislation and her focus is making sure that she facilitates the efficient processing of information for her clients and HMRC alike.
The expansion into HR, P11D preparation and Bookkeeping has been a natural progression, as her business has grown, and she continues to value the relationships she has built with her existing client base. When she’s not running her company, Julie likes to give back, getting involved in organising charity events. She loves spending time with her family, travelling, going to the theatre, walking her dog and socialising with friends.
