McGinnis Loy Associates is proud to be working with a well-known regional Accounting Firm who are continuing to enjoy strong growth across their Thames Valley & London offices. They are now seeking a Payroll Administrator to join their growing team in Buckinghamshire who will be responsible for 100+ multiple client payrolls consisting of UK Ltd companies, partnerships and sole traders. Reporting to the Payroll Manager, key duties include:

  • Processing payrolls for all third party client employees on a weekly, fortnightly and/or monthly basis
  • Calculating PAYE, NI, SSP, SMP, SPP and other payments as required on behalf of clients (eg student loans, travel loans, expense payments)
  • Reconciling client payrolls ensuring all payrolls processed are accurate and on time
  • Setting up new payroll schemes for clients with HMRC, and supporting them through the first few payroll cycles
  • Responsible for CIS payroll schemes and salary sacrifice benefits

  • Reconciling payroll reports on a monthly basis, preparation of BACS payments for net salaries
  • Reconciliation of client monies and undertaking audits for data quality

To be considered for the role you should ideally have experience of working in a complex and high-volume multi-payroll environment, with up to date knowledge of UK payroll regulations, year-end processes and payroll rules.
