We pride ourselves on being our clients' accounting partner and providing the very best in accountancy advice and knowledge.

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, Vantage Gold, Vantage Platinum and Vantage Professional, designed and developed for contractors working in all sectors and anywhere in the UK.

Fixed Fee Accountancy Packages

Vantage Gold provides a host of services as well as unlimited and direct access to a trusted advisor. Your accountant will be there to guide you through contractor specific compliance issues, recommend tax-efficient models and suggest any useful expenses to claim.

For companies with two directors, Vantage Platinum offers the same services and more, including a service office and registered office, as well as second director self-assessment tax returns.

Vantage Professional is an all-inclusive package complete with business insurance, IPSE and a free Wealth and Mortgage review.
