Brookson was founded in 1995 by Rick and Carolyn Nevinson who had a vision of creating an accountancy and legal company with a difference – a company passionate about meeting the needs of their customers through innovation and personal attention; these are values that the firm continue to uphold today.
Where we are now
Due to frequent requests from both the NHS and healthcare workers, in 2012 we started creating special solutions for the NHS and wider healthcare sector and we have gone on to be one of the most important providers in the industry.
Our experienced team of in-house solicitors, accountants and recruitment experts support:
- £130m of temporary healthcare labour spend each year
- Over £50m of annual VAT savings in the NHS
- 37 NHS clients
- A number of private healthcare clients
- Hundreds of recruitment agencies
- 10,000+ timesheet completions, approvals and payments per month
This unrivalled knowledge continues to help evolve our service lines to address ongoing industry challenges, including IR35 changes, Criminal Finances Act legislation, government efficiency targets and the changing world of healthcare.
As well as our NHS clients, we also support over 90,000 flexible workers, advising them on key accountancy and legislative points, whilst reassuringly removing reputational and financial risks.
We strongly believe that our core values have helped develop the pioneering and friendly approach that comes with a level of proactivity that should make you feel like we are the most helpful pair of hands your business could ask for.
Whilst we underpin our accountancy, legal and recruitment services with the best technology in the market, it is our people that make the real difference for our clients.
