About us

Nicholsons Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers have been working with businesses within the Lincoln and East Midlands area since 1923 helping them with their finance, tax and accountancy affairs. Today we continue to provide these services to clients but recognize that business owners want more from the relationship they have with their most trusted adviser. We aim to help our clients succeed in business by offering a comprehensive business advisory service that provides support and proactive advice on a range of financial and commercial issues. By using Xero we can provide the foundations of our service by helping business owners get underneath the numbers and understand what makes their business tick.

Please note, Xero doesn't guarantee the service of any one advisor

We don’t review advisor listings and we don’t recommend or guarantee the service provided by any one advisor, so make sure you check them out yourself and get comfortable with them yourself.

Xero certification means that some or all team members have completed courses and been assessed by Xero as proficient in the use of the Xero application.

Xero specialisation means that some or all team members have completed several short learning modules to develop skills in that area.

Xero doesn’t assess any individual advisor’s or firm’s proficiency as an accountant, bookkeeper or financial advisor. And Xero certified advisors and advisors with industry or bank specialisations are not employees of Xero.
