Part Time
This small independent firm of Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, established over 25 years ago, are based in beautiful Georgian offices in Central Bristol with free parking - a rare luxury.

Their Payroll & Tax Assistant is leaving for pastures new and they’re looking to replace her. She said herself that it’s been the ‘best job she’s ever had’ and this firm will readily help all staff gain experience in other areas of interest to make sure everyone continues to challenge themselves – if they wish to.

This is a lovely position for someone who likes to work autonomously and flexibly. This is a very family-orientated and friendly firm.

You will be responsible for all the client payrolls. There is another member of staff who steps in as backup but this will be your baby, along with simple tax returns:
• Preparation of 100 clients’ personal tax returns including partnership tax returns and submission to HMRC
• Responsibility for producing client payrolls (all monthly, largest has 40 staff, but mostly small)
• RTI submissions, auto enrolment considerations and submission of automated payments to bank if required.
• Review of payrolls completed by payroll assistant, and assistance in payroll matters
• Reconciliation of payroll bank account
• Dealing with general tax and payroll queries as received
• Responsibility for CIS returns as necessary
• Administration of payroll and tax clients and raising invoices
• Preparation of income and expenditure accounts for tax clients if required
• Responding to correspondence with clients and HMRC

Hours & salary
This is a full or part time position. They probably need at least 25 hours a week but it would work well for someone needing school hours, for example. They can also be flexible with school holidays, too. They are happy to provide a salary based on experience, as there is much variety in payroll. Please make sure you let me know your current salary if you apply.

About you
You will be an experienced client payroller with knowledge of preparing personal tax returns. You should have a very good telephone manner and be comfortable meeting clients in the office (there aren’t any external visits).

To apply
Please send your CV directly to me -, and include some information in the email about yourself, including your current salary and your interest in this position. I look forward to hearing from you.
