How it started
It began with an idea.
After a stint in private equity, followed by a range of entrepreneurial projects, Neil Nichols was struck by how bad high street accountants were at helping small businesses do anything useful with their accounts.
A lot of effort went into producing annual accounts, but analysing data over a year old was useless.
Neil set out to make accountancy useful, with a focus on business plans, real-time and forward-looking data. And by using the data more intelligently (and combining it with some clever technology), forecasting and cashflow modeling needed to be baked into the proposition.
And so, Accounts and Legal was born.
One of the only firms in the UK offering accountancy and legal services, all under one roof.
A firm set up to provide everything entrepreneurs could ever need in one place.
