Simon Parsons Reaches Number Two In UK’s Top 50 Payroll Professionals
Ceridian, one of the UK's leading HR and payroll services provider, is proud to announce that, for the second year running, Simon Parsons, Director of Payments, Benefits and Compliance Strategies, has been named in the top 50 payroll professionals in the UK; awarded position number two for 2010.
Established by Payroll World to recognise the achievements of the industry's most influential payroll professionals, the Payroll Top 50 panel felt Simon's work as chair of IReeN - the electronic exchange with government user group - and as vice-chair of the British Computer Society Payroll Group were worthy of particular mention.
Commenting, Simon said: "It is an honour to be recognised for influence in the payroll industry, particularly at this difficult time - with the issues on HMRC handling that have recently hit the headlines - and changes in policy and law undertaken by the coalition government. Payroll needs to hold government to account to ensure better relations between employer, employee and government.
There are many challenges ahead and we all need to work together to create a win-win situation. With as HMRC's guidance and the law in the application of PAYE based on estimates, professionals working with current legislation know that what is right is often wrong.
