Another award for Nicolson Accountancy

Nicolson Accountancy has been nominated for the 2012 Scottish Accountancy Awards as one of the Top Small Firms in Scotland.

This follows on from their success as runners-up in the British Accountancy Awards in 2011 in the category of Best Independent Firm in Scotland, and underpins their growing reputation in delivering quality advice to a wide spectrum of clients across Scotland and the UK.

Founded by Sue and Angus Nicolson in 2004, the business has grown rapidly over the years, and the firm is now the leading provider of Norwegian Tax services in the UK, as well as providing the full range of accountancy services to a huge range of local, national and international clients all from the Stornoway office.

The firm operates the only BACS Bureau in the islands, allowing client payments to be made electronically, saving time and costs on every payment made.

The client base of well over 1,000 clients includes over 800 Western Isles business and individuals as well as a huge variety of Scottish multi-nationals, numerous Norwegian based employment agencies, the State Oil Company of an ex-Soviet Republic, and an eclectic mix of other clients across the whole of the UK.

The firm has been nominated because of its unique approach to the challenges of geography, which is to bypass the challenge by the use of Google Adwords to deliver growth of over 30% in each of the past four years, resulting in the firm becoming the largest accountancy practice in the islands this year.
Sue Nicolson, director, explained the success: “We have sought to deliver a quality service to every one of our clients by using the technology and the personal touch to keep our clients fully satisfied with the service we provide. 

We provide HR services to multi-nationals and tax returns for crofters with the same determination to deliver an exemplary service.”

Announcing a new stage in the growth of the firm, Angus Nicolson was able to confirm that the firm has recruited further qualified staff to meet client expectations and added: “The speed of growth has surprised us, but we know that we can continue to see rapid growth over the next five years and we fully expect to double our staff in the next two years as the confirmed work for the foreseeable future is growing every day. This demonstrates that the opportunities exist if you understand them are prepared to deliver a quality service.”

Nicolson Accountancy also operates under a variety of niche brands, including Norway-tax.co.uk and Dutch-tax.co.uk, as well as PayrollScotland – which processes over £30m in payroll every year in the Bayhead office.
