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.


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.


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.
