After over 30 years of experience in practice and industry, Perspectives Accounting & Business Services was set up in 2017 to help individuals, sole traders, small and medium-sized companies and not for profits/charities navigate through the financial minefield of today's world.
Nick Williams FCA
I qualified as a Chartered Accountant at a medium sized practice in London where I had extensive experience with individuals, sole traders and small and medium sized business. Taking pride in offering a personal service to my clients, I was able to understand what clients needed to grow their business quickly and efficiently. To broaden my experience, I joined KPMG, one of the big four accountancy practices in the world, spending two years in London and two years in the USA.
In 1992, I left practice for the world of industry, joining a family owned food business. Initially coming in to strengthen the financial management side. As Finance Director, I guided the business and its directors through business acquisitions, a management buyout, office relocations and systems implementations.
In 2003, following the successful sale of the business, I helped set up and run several small businesses in the retail sector. I discovered how difficult it can be to balance serving the needs of sometimes demanding customers alongside running the business, particularly when trying to find the right staff and deal with all the red tape and paperwork required of a modern business.
Sue Williams MBA ACCA
I am a qualified Chartered Certified Accountant and have also graduated with a Masters degree in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Wales.
I have extensive management experience in the food manufacturing industry having been part of a start-up family business in 1987. This gave me a great depth of all round knowledge and experience within the many aspects of a fledgling and growing business. I was responsible for finance, from system design, budgeting, management accounts, to the statutory audited accounts, as well as all commercial matters of the business.
My experience spanned over the many facets of subsequent mergers and acquisitions, such as due diligence engagements that came with the management buyout that we enacted, and then eventual sale of the business to a PLC. This gave me invaluable experience that helps me understand and associate many of the challenges our clients face daily, and I am able to apply the knowledge and skills gained from these once in a lifetime experiences to help our clients.
My experience also expands into retail, subsequently having jointly set up a number of businesses in the retail sector with the challenges of demanding customers, finding and developing the right staff whilst simultaneously growing the business.
I am dedicated to guiding and helping our clients by firstly streamlining their systems, which helps reduce the stresses of bookkeeping and accounting and allows them to focus on their business and spend that crucial time with their growing families, while we take care of their accounting.
We can provide management and financial insights to your business and supply management information to help you make those paramount decisions which will help set you apart from the competition.

Professional service and great advice
Frantic Carol, March 28, 2019
"I am not a business person but desperately needed an accountant when I realised we had to summit tax returns after disposing of some assets. I needed the returns to be completed quickly and I am just so thankful I found Perspectives. From the initial contact I realised I was in safe and professional hands, even with what I soon realised was the complex world of Capital Gains Tax! It was evident that Nick was very knowledgeable in Capital Gains law but still thoroughly researched all relevant regulations to ensure the best outcome for me. He also conferred with other tax experts for certainty. I felt reassured throughout the entire process and would highly recommend their services. Needless to say I will obviously continue to use them for future returns I have to make"
Accountant who puts your company's interests first
Wayne Lewis, Aug 23, 2018
"I contacted Perspectives Accounting when my business got into a spot of difficulty with the Tax man. They offer a free consultation meeting to begin with to identify how they can best assist you, then develop a plan in partnership with you. They were extremely professional, reliable and acted incredibly quickly on my behalf. They resolved my issue and managed to negotiate lower payments with HMRC. If your looking for a very good accountant who will put you and your company's interests first, then look no further. Needless to say, they are now my accountants. 10/10."
5 Stars all the way!!

"We have worked with Nick for a few years now and would never go anywhere else. He is extremely professional friendly and very knowledgeable if we have any problems he is always quick to reply and make our problems disappear. We would recommend him to anyone who needs a top-notch accountant and can not thank him enough for all the help and support he has given us and the business, a 5-star accountant and company."
