It is important that you send us your timesheets with the hours that your personal assistant has worked on the above dates to ensure your payroll is processed in time. Please remember to tell us about any holiday, sick pay or leavers at each payroll.  You can contact with your hours before the date due.  We would always endeavour to provide you with a courtesy call as a prompt, however it is important that you do not rely on this service as we cannot guarantee we will be in a position to provide this every payroll.

For those who we support with a managed account- we must have your hours in by 12pm (or earlier) on the ring in date to ensure your PA is paid on time.


Leave a message on 01325 360524 leaving your name and contact number so that we can call you to verify the hours and obtain your timesheet.

We will send your payroll details to you by the Friday of payroll week.
