The Dafferns team have managed our payroll and PAYE processing since 2017, and the service has always been first class.

Helen is always approachable, efficient and patient. Given the consequences of getting the payroll wrong, it’s reassuring to have a trustworthy partner taking care of the detail and ensuring that the numbers are correct and compliant.

Piers Jones – Finance Director – Unit 2 Games Ltd

We have been using Dafferns payroll and pension services for two years and Helen has always given us a first class service. We always receive a quick and timely response and our payroll has been so accurately prepared that I cannot recall a single question or adjustment to an employee’s payment following payday.

Helen has also gone out of her way to help us, for example finding a solution when we needed a quick turnaround for an unusually high intake of employees in a single month when our apprentices joined the Trust.

I am so pleased to know that our payroll is in safe hands each month and I look forward to working with Helen during the City of Culture year. I would absolutely recommend Dafferns payroll service.

Helen has looked after my companies payroll for a number of years and I have to say that she has always done a first class job! She is always extremely professional, very prompt in dealing with any requests but also she is approachable and easy to work with.
