Our most treasured employee of Westcountry Payroll passed away on Friday 5 January 2018
The very hard-working Boris had been around for a number of years. He was paid generously with Cat Food/Treats and a comfy box by the radiator to curl up in while he slept the day away. He was a very well-loved member of our team. While he lived in Newtown, he seemed to enjoy his office life at Barnfield Crescent very much.
What our clients say
Devon Square Charity Accounting Limited
“My job would be a lot harder if I didn’t have the kind of support I get from the Westcountry team.
I can rely on them to give a fast and friendly service and they’re great at responding to calls for help. I‘ve recommended Westcountry Payroll to several of my clients over the years. Quotes have always been competitive but, more importantly, there are no hidden extras and they haven’t been phased by some of the trickier problems that have been thrown their way.
It’s great to have a named contact so you’re always dealing with the same person, but if they’re away you know that someone else will pick up queries so you’re not kept waiting. Fantastic!”
