As 2022 draws to a close I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our members for your continued support again this year. It has been a tough year without a doubt following two years of major disruptions, significantly increased costs to be an employer and ever-changing goal posts to navigate.

We are open throughout the festive period apart from the Public Holidays to support you.

If you're still unclear of how the stats are recognised over the break please see our calendar here.

We look forwards to working with you again in the coming year

Merry Xmas
