About JMK

Testimonial

"I have been working with Aqueel and the JMK Group on a weekly basis for over a year now. Having previously used several payroll companies in the past, I honestly could not recommend Aqueel and the team highly enough. If we have a problem, he moves heaven & earth to resolve it as soon as possible, even if this means going beyond the call of duty and managing our account outside of his working hours. Aqueel also keeps his relationship approachable and friendly with us, which I find not only refreshing but helpful."
