About Nixon Williams

Who are Nixon Williams?

Nixon Williams has been providing specialist accountancy services to contractors, freelancers, consultants and interim professionals throughout the UK since 1995.

We pride ourselves on being our clients’ accounting partner and providing the very best in accountancy advice and knowledge. This is why 98% of our accounts team are qualified or studying towards qualifications from the following accountancy bodies: ATT, AAT, ACCA, CTA.

At Nixon Williams our low-cost, fixed fee accountancy packages take care of all our clients’ business and personal taxation needs. We currently have clients on our books who are working as contractors across a range of industries including IT, Finance, Engineering, Management Consultancy and Healthcare.

How Nixon Williams can help?

Our clients can rely on us to provide a dedicated accountant to look after them. We are generous with our time, so all clients are given a direct line to their accountant so they can contact them as many times as you, our client, needs. Our accountants explain everything in plain English with no accountancy jargon to ensure that you always feel in control of your finances.

Unlike many contractor accountants, at Nixon Williams, we will set up limited companies for all of our clients free of charge. When we form a new company we also provide assistance opening a business bank account and register the company for PAYE, VAT and corporation tax.

At Nixon Williams, we offer three packages, Gold, Platinum and Professional, designed and developed for contractors working in all sectors and anywhere in the UK.
