What our clients say…

Dr William Jasper, GP Partner

We have received an excellent service since we moved to Nichols & Co. The transition has been the most hassle-free and transparent. They are always very helpful with any queries you might have and have a very good working knowledge of General Practice and are keenly aware of the challenges Practices face within the changing environment of the NHS.

We have been very impressed by the way Nichols & Co continue to deliver the range of services they provide from Accounts to Tax and NHS Pension advice.

At the year-end meetings, the accounts are presented in an understandable format without any unnecessary jargons. We have found Practice consultation and advice on Practice as well as personal tax matters from Nichols & Co specifically helpful.

We would not hesitate to recommend them to other GP Practices.

Dr C DeSouza, Salaried GP

I am a GP who works both in salaried and sessional roles. I have been with Nichols & Co for nearly three years. They have helped with my tax returns and can help with the range of different forms required in GP work. Danny and Shadmir have been accurate and efficient in their advice and guidance throughout. They have also been helpful and responsive when I have needed advice on the purchase of a car and also when looking to prove my income in order to get a mortgage. The system for providing income details and expenses is very easy to use and the summary they provide of how and when to pay your tax could not be clearer. I would recommend Nichols & Co to any colleague looking for an accountant with a good knowledge of GP work. 

Dr Ravi Bansal, Locum GP

I’ve been with Nichols and Co for nearly 10 years with Debra being my accountant. I first contacted them when I received letters for tax arrears due to the wrong tax codes being applied during my hospital jobs.

Debra sorted this matter out and has always provided helpful and honest advice regarding tax matters. She has also helped my wife with her tax returns. I would definitely recommend their services for accounting matters with a special interest in helping doctors with their tax affairs. They are approachable, helpful and efficient.

Dr David Paige, Consultant Dermatologist, The Holly Private Hospital

The reason I was first attracted to Nichols was when I heard Mr Nichols explain the complexities of the Life-time allowance and the Annual allowance changes in simple terms. I have had no regrets using this firm as they are very trustworthy and honest.

They also sorted out my allocation of rental income to my partner correctly which I had been badly advised on before by a very large and well known accountancy firm.

They respond in a timely manner to queries and (politely) chase me up over submitting my tax return details. I would recommend them to anybody in the medical profession.

Mr Muhammed Siddiqui, Hospital Doctor

As a trainee I was very unaware of the tax system when starting work. I was pursuing surgery and it resulted in paying for a lot of courses and locuming to support my journey. The tax system was very complicated and when I went to see Debra as I really had no idea how to start sorting out my tax affairs including correcting tax codes and what the locuming income meant for my current PAYE system and also how I could maximise my tax free amount with subscriptions.
I cannot thank them enough for helping. They really listened to my concerns and needs. I had never thought of getting an accountant until then and had never thought of stopping except for the fairness that Nichols and Co have dealt with me. They’ve taken me to a place where I am now beginning to do my own tax returns resulting in independence. Their ethical approach towards me has resulted in recommending my sister and other colleagues to seek their help. My emails are always answered quickly and appropriately. They are and, in particular, Debra truly exceptional accountants.
