About Fergus Neilson

And what makes us special

We are a payroll outsouring company. Full stop. That’s all we do. It’s not an add on service to our bookkeeping or accountancy business. We concentrate only on payroll. We’re always up to date with legislation via our membership of The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals and we offer a personalised expert payroll management service at a competitive price

We cover the whole of the UK

From our central UK base we cover all parts of the UK so whether your employees come under UK or Scottish taxation we have it covered

We know from experience that employers like to have their payroll provider nearby – just in case – and we think that supporting local business is admirable.  But if you’re business is based in deepest Cornwall or up in Cumbria or anywhere else in the UK then we pride ourselves that you will still feel that we are your local payroll provider. We establish close relationships with our clients and this helps us to tailor our service to your requirements.  Get in touch and tell us your payroll needs.

Our History

Since 2002

Fergus Neilson was incorporated as a limited company in 2002 following 3 years as a sole tradership under the name Payrollplus.   The M.D. then was Linda Ferguson  who had  a background in accountancy and payroll going back to the 1970s when payroll was a simple affair. Who remembers a time when national insurance stamps were bought at the post office and stuck onto employee cards?

If only life were so simple!   Now we have auto enrolment, debt collection, charity giving, salary sacrifice, all operated via payroll, to name but a few of many additions since those bygone days.

In 2018 Emma Williams joined the team and took over the day to day running  and ownership of the business. Emma has a BSc (Hons) in Accounting, Auditing and Finance and trained with Ernst & Young. Emma is a Chartered Accountant (ICAEW) with many years experience in running different payroll systems.

We pride ourselves on the friendly and approachable service we give our clients wherever they are based.
