Karen Wales – Payroll Manager

I became Payroll Manager in 2010 when I joined Hayhow & Co. I am responsible for all aspects of Payroll including weekly, fortnightly, 4 weekly and monthly pay schedules, as well as Contractor Monthly Returns and all aspects of CIS. With Auto-enrolment now coming into force, please contact me if you have any queries at all regarding your legal requirements.

“I know how important it is to be on top of all employment legislation and how daunting it can be for clients to face the new challenges that employment can bring, but if I can help the client with their legal responsibility so that they can concentrate on running their business then I’m more than happy to do so.”

When I’m not at work I like nothing more than a spot of gardening – I can`t resist a plant!

If you have any payroll queries or need some advice please contact me:
