Ashmole & Co’s Payroll team has gone from strength to strength with Richard Morse, from Fishguard, having recently joined as a Payroll Clerk in the firm’s Haverfordwest office.
Five years ago the accountancy firm had just one payroll clerk and now they are a strong team of seven. Day to day the Payroll team are the hidden heroes for local clients as they administer their pay systems.
Since COVID-19 struck Ashmole & Co’s Payroll team have been extremely busy working hard for clients to make sure they are getting all the government support they are entitled to via the Furlough Scheme.
Richard joined Ashmole & Co in March and day to day he processes clients’ payroll and helps with their enquiries.
Prior to starting with Ashmole & Co, Richard was the Manager of Fishguard Bay Hotel. He worked at the hotel for 23 years working his way up from being a restaurant team member to being the Hotel Manager for the final three years. During his 11 years as Assistant Manager Richard was in charge of payroll for the hotel’s staff.
Welcoming Richard to the team, William Hughes, Partner in the Tenby and Haverfordwest Ashmole & Co offices, said, “We are absolutely delighted to have Richard, with his local knowledge and experience in payroll, join our team. Our dedicated payroll team allows local companies to be relieved of the burden of administering their payroll. The last 18 months have been especially difficult for so many employers having to furlough staff as a result of the pandemic. We have been proud to be able to help them safely through the minefield of applying for support to ensure those local employees still have jobs and are paid.”
With Ashmole and Co managing payroll, local clients can concentrate on the core activities of their business. Payroll registration, advice, compliance, investigations, bureau service and CIS contracts are all part of the service Ashmole & Co can provide.
The most rewarding part of the job for Richard is having the opportunity to build strong and fruitful working relationships with clients. He says his background in hospitality certainly assists him in his new position as being helpful and providing a friendly service is essential.
Commenting on his appointment Richard said, “Having lived and worked in Fishguard all my life I’m delighted to be able to now work with local companies and help them with their payroll as part of the team at Ashmole & Co.”
