Lydia learned her trade with an accountancy firm, then moved to a large retailer before joining NannyMatters as an AAT qualified Payroll Specialist. Lydia applies her considerable knowledge and professionalism to many of our nanny payrolls. She is also at the forefront of payroll developments and legislative changes.

Our History

NannyMatters and Macfarlane Hull began in 2002, when our founder, Alison Hull,  first discovered the trials and tribulations of being a working parent.

Alison has a long career in payroll management and accountancy behind her, and various academic work including assignments for the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals, where she now holds a Fellowship.

We moved to our current office location in Backwell, near Bristol, in 2011. We currently employ 7 staff, looking after more than 1,200 families and their employees as well as several small businesses and charities.

Delivering a great service on the phone, by email and online

We are a relatively small firm, not a call centre, and our customer service is second to none.

We aim to answer all our calls personally and within 3 rings, and you will never be asked to follow an electronic menu.

We understand that email is a really convenient way to communicate and almost always reply within 4 hours, never longer than 1 working day. 

Online, we are committed to doing more via our website and plan to deliver a whole range of new services to our customers.

Register here and we can get things moving in 1 working day.
