A little bit about Aspiring Training


Aspiring Training Limited established in 2012 was set up to meet the needs of businesses and accountancy practices requiring practical and informative seminars or training on all aspects of payroll.

Payroll can be fun – no two days are the same!!

We want to pass on our knowledge so that delegates can enjoy their jobs knowing they are equipped to deal with employee queries, employer demands and the ever changing legislation.

It is our passion for the subject that drives us to continue to seek to improve the delivery of our seminars. We want those who attend to understand the intricacies of payroll and so become more successful in their roles.

If we are able to help a delegate, through training, become more productive and successful in their role we are also helping them find satisfaction in the payroll function. At the same time we are playing a small part in making their employer more successful. This gives us the satisfaction of a job well done.

Our professional and hands on experience of the payroll sector, gained over many years within the accountancy profession, enables us to give practical advice to delegates. We bring up to date knowledge and guidance on all aspects of payroll and payroll related HR issues to all those who attend the seminars we offer.
