PM+M payroll expert named as founding member of new national professional body
Julie Mason, payroll manager at PM+M - the chartered accountancy, business advisory and wealth management group, has been named as a founding member of the newly formed Payroll Bureau Association.
The organisation, which is made up of some of the country’s leading payroll bureau professionals, has been launched to provide a support network for members, including lobbying HMRC on legislative and technical issues, and promoting professional qualifications to enhance standards. It held its inaugural meeting this month.
The group is also focused on bolstering the numbers of people opting for a career in payroll, for which there is a current skills shortage in the UK.
Julie commented: “Due to the launch of the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, the payroll sector has recently been in the spotlight and as a result, myself and my co-founders felt that now would be the perfect time to launch the Payroll Bureau Association, in order to reach out to other payroll professionals from across the UK looking for additional support.
Julie added: “I am really proud be part of the founding group for this unique and eagerly awaited platform, which I hope will help to raise awareness of the importance of payroll and promote payroll as a career path, something I feel very passionate about. I would urge all payroll professionals to take a look at the work we’re doing and consider being part of this new initiative which aims to shape the future of our industry.”
