Payroll team 


Do you ever feel as if your business is "drowning" in paperwork?  Sometimes, it's difficult to keep on top of everything, but one thing you can't afford to neglect is your staff payroll (no payroll, no staff!). 

If you need some help keeping on top of payroll issues, our payroll team can deal with everything for you, ensuring that your staff (and HMRC!) are paid the right amounts at the right time, leaving you to focus on running your business.

Linda Johnston – Linda has been working with Springfords now for 24 years, the last 17 of which have been in the payroll department, where she currently manages our payroll bureau service. She looks after the payroll processing for a great mix of clients, with employee numbers ranging from 1 to 100, and enjoys the regular challenge of meeting weekly and monthly deadlines  - especially with all the statutory changes payroll has undergone over the last few years. Given her length of service, she clearly enjoys the challenge, made easier by the fact that she thinks it’s great having a job you enjoy, with a great place to work and great people to work with!! Outside of work, she has a busy family life, likes to walk, read and, of course, indulge in the odd glass of wine or two!!!

Dave Souness - Dave is currently a part time assistant to Linda in the Payroll Department, working one day a week (although in some weeks he's here two days – it's complicated !) Some of you will know that Dave previously worked with Springfords for around 10 years in the Personal Tax department, before leaving to run his own business, which he currently does with his wife at The North Berwick Bathroom and Tile Company. Having worked previously within HMRC, he has a good knowledge of all things PAYE related, which is of course essential when working with payrolls.  Outside of work, he is a busy father to two teenage boys and is actively involved in his local youth football team at Dunbar United Colts.

Susanne Robertson - Susanne joined Springfords in October 2015. Currently based in our payroll department, she has 11 years’ experience gained in a mix of payroll and accounts processing roles. She also has lots of experience in the area of Pension Auto Enrolment which is of great value to our payroll clients as they go through this process. Outwith work she is kept busy looking after her two children and the recent addition to the family, a husky puppy who is now taking up most of her free time!
