Payroll professional joins accountancy firm

A Teesside accountancy firm has bolstered its business services by adding to its team of payroll experts.

Baines Jewitt Chartered Accountants in Stockton has appointed 34-year-old Jacqueline James from Middlesbrough to join its outsourced payroll bureau.

Jacqueline has joined Baines Jewitt after working for over two years with one of the UK’s leading payroll software organisations, as well as gaining experience across a variety of other sectors, from caring for young people and adults with learning disabilities to retail and product management.

She also has accredited qualifications from the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP).

“I’m looking forward to getting to know our clients and finding ways to help with the smooth running of their business activities,” said Jacqueline.

“In particular, I’m delighted to be joining a team that helps to take the pressure off business owners by taking care of everything from processing wages, overtime and sick pay to dealing with workplace pension auto-enrolment, completing statutory paperwork and keeping people compliant with HMRC.

“Importantly, when organisations outsource their payroll activities to us, we can improve their operational efficiencies and free up their valuable time.

“What’s more, Baines Jewitt has recently introduced a ‘Just Payroll’ service, which means organisations can tap into as little or as much help as they need and don’t have to be one of our accountancy clients.”
