Julie has been a member of the Johnston Smillie team since 2014. She has previous experience of working in a similar role in a payroll bureau and has a high level of payroll knowledge.
Julie works with a large and varied portfolio of payroll clients at Johnston Smillie, ranging from one director companies up to clients who have 100+ employees. Julie is experienced in all aspects of payroll, including:
- Apprentice Levy
- Auto Enrolment
- Construction Industry Scheme
- Employment Allowance
- Payrolling Benefits in Kind
- RTI (Real Time Information)
- Salary Sacrifice
Julie understands the need for keeping her clients informed due to the fast changing pace of payroll legislation and as such her clients can be confident that any new payroll processes are applied in a timely manner, such as the National Living Wage increases and any annual statutory payment rate changes and thresholds.
When considering outsourcing your payroll or changing payroll provider Julie recognises this is a big decision and works closely with clients to ensure a smooth transition and tailors our payroll services to each individual client’s needs.
What Our Clients Say...
“Our relationship with Johnston Smillie began in 1991 when we first established Lothian Machinery Ring Ltd. Over the years we have established another two subsidiary companies and throughout this time they have always been very friendly, supportive and totally professional to work with.
A recent example was with the inception of auto enrolment we were referred to Julie Hunter who sorted everything out promptly and efficiently, but in a friendly and easy to understand manner.
Many thanks for this Julie and also to the rest of the staff at Johnston Smillie with which we look forward to a continuing working relationship for the foreseeable future. We would have no hesitation in recommending Johnston Smillie to anyone who is looking for a professional and approachable accountancy firm.”
