Most of all, we have the knowledge and experience you would expect from accountants to deliver a complete menu of services to each business.  All with the personal touch that comes from speaking directly to a professional qualified accountant.

Accountants who deliver solutions, not problems

Accounting services

It isn't just about crunching the numbers and filing the accounts on time. It is also about presentation for lenders; tax planning; and, of course, to help you, the business owner.

We have been recognised as the Best Accountancy Firm in Scotland more than once and you can benefit from our knowledge and experience.

Tax advice

Nicolson Accountancy ensure that tax planning is a integral part of our service to you.

If we can find a legal way to reduce your tax liabilities, now or in the future, we will.

Tax is complex, but we try and make it easy for you with simple solutions that are effective and are value for money.


Payroll services

Getting your staff paid on time is a key part of running a business.

Our payroll bureau makes it simple for you, and as an authorised BACS bureau we can even make the payments to staff, HMRC and third parties on your behalf.

Case Study #1

A client sought advice on enhancing their computer systems and their management accounting reporting.

With our help and within the period of 6 months, they had moved from an underused computer software package - with a complete set of manual books too - to producing detailed and accurate accounts.

Three years on, they are still saving time and money at every stage of the process.

Case Study #2

We were approached by a new client who was unhappy with the tax advice they were receiving from their existing accountants.

We took them on, and on establishing the position we realised that they were grossly overpaying tax and missing huge potential tax savings.  The previous accountants - a multinational firm - had forced such complicated and convoluted accounting onto the client that the tax saving opportunities had been lost behind obscure pieces of tax reporting.

Needless to say, they were delighted with the savings, and the refunds we generated for them with retrospective claims.


From our perspective, the Norwegian tax service you provide us is excellent; very professional and second to none.

I don’t now of any other company we deal with that are available even during holidays, and no matter how tight a deadline we have had to deal with, you are always able to help us meet it.

It is a great comfort to know that there is such a knowledgeable and professional service to support us and we have no hesitation in recommending you and your firm to anyone.

- CLM Management, Isle of Man

We have been clients of Nicolson Accountancy for 10 years and in that time our accounts have been dealt with efficiently and always with the utmost care.

We have also found their service and support over the years very helpful. They manage to be professional and approachable, always available online or by telephone.

Our business has been helped and enhanced thanks to our liaison with Nicolson Accountancy.
