Brookson was founded in 1995, in Warrington, by Rick and Carolyn Nevinson. Rick has a background in engineering and found that others in the industry were incurring huge year-end tax bills and having no money to pay them, he did not have this problem as his wife Carolyn was completing his accounts for him. This made them think that... ‘There must be a better way for contractors to manage their accounts’ ...and Brookson was born!
Rick and Carolyn set up Brookson with the vision of creating an accountancy firm with a difference – a firm passionate about meeting the needs of their customers through innovation and personal attention; these are values that the firm continue to uphold today!
Since 1995, Brookson have provided top class accountancy service to over 90,000 contractors, freelancers and self-employed professionals. We have transformed from a small Warrington based accountancy firm into a nationwide contractor accountants company with over 300 employees, however, despite this growth we still pride ourselves on a friendly personalised service.
From our base at Brunel House in Warrington, we ensure that all of our customers receive the highest standard of service on the market whether that is through our Limited Company, Umbrella Company or Sole Trader service lines. We always ensure we stay right up to date with all of the latest industry trends and legislation so that no matter what happens, our customers will always receive the best possible service.
