FS Accountants expands

FS Accountants has recruited a new employee to join its accounts and tax team, with Sarah Parker joining the Clitheroe firm as a payroll manager.

Sarah, who lives in Clitheroe, has previously worked at Cassons Accountants, Haslingden and Mayes Accountants, Accrington.

Sarah said: “I’ve been working in a payroll department for 12 years and really relish this opportunity to run a department. It is an exciting time in payroll with the recent HMRC changes introducing RTI filing and the introduction of pension auto enrolement.”

Sarah Sharples, director at FS Accountants, said: “Payroll is a growing area of our business with more and more clients wanting to outsource this service. The administration involved in running your own payroll scheme has grown dramatically and many clients simply don’t have the time to meet the reporting requirements.

"We feel it is a real bonus to offer a dedicated payroll contact to our clients. Sarah has 12 years of experience and we feel she will be an excellent addition to our team." The firm, which has been twice shortlisted in the British Accountancy Awards, looks after a broad range of businesses in the local and surrounding areas.
