Winckley History

Winckley Payroll Services was setup in the 1980s due to the growing demand of clients wanting to electronically calculate their employee’s payroll. We have been through all major changes in the PAYE system including P32 year end reporting, the recent changes to Real Time Information reporting and Auto-Enrolment legislation.

The name Winckley comes from when the business was located in Starkie House on Winckley Square, Preston. Winckley Square is historically the centre for accountants, lawyers and professional services in Preston. More information on the history of Winckley Square can be found  here. In 2013 the business moved to purpose built offices in Fulwood where there is now ample parking and space for if clients wish to visit us.

Rushtons Partnership

Winckley is the in-house full service payroll bureau of Rushtons Chartered Accountants. Rushtons have been a prominent accountancy practice in the Preston area with the practice dating back to the 1880s. In Summer 2015 the practice merged with Titus Thorp and Ainsworth which had a predominantly Fylde coast client base and Winckley now processes payroll for clients across the county and further afield. We have clients based all over the country and with secure email reports can get the information back to them with ease. We also have clients who are based abroad and we process just their UK payroll.

Being partnered with Rushtons Chartered Accountants gives Winckley the full backup that a Chartered Accountancy practice can offer whilst keeping our costs low. We are based in the same building as the Preston office of Rushtons and so have support on hand for any particularly complex queries. If you are a client of Rushtons it also allows us to efficiently supply the accounts and tax staff with all the information they need to deal with your affairs.

We invest in the latest technology and software to ensure we can be efficient as possible.

Chris Calvert now takes day-to-day responsibility for Winckley and if you have any queries please feel free to contact him.
