Nigel qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1982 and shortly after moved to Loughborough to become a Partner in another local firm until 1999.

In the year 2000 Nigel decided to make a fresh start and Nigel Ricks & Company was created.

He deals with all tax matters and keeps himself up to date with the latest regulations and helps clients with HMRC investigations.

He enjoys working alongside his clients to develop robust internal systems and accurate accounting.

This approach enables a greater understanding of the needs of the client. His approach is not interfering and will happily guide and offer suggestions.

Personal Interests

Nigel Ricks enjoys good humour and has a sense of fun, in business he believes that professional standards and confidentiality are corner stones. Nigel enjoys walking Lottie his Australian Labradoodle with his wife and particularly going to the coast for a bit of fresh air.

Nigel has been an active member of Coalville Rotary Club over the years and has made many long term friends via this.


Nigel has always had a strong interest in computing. He installed and maintained the system in his previous partnership. After setting up his own practice Nigel designed, implemented and maintains a robust internal system with a view to combining professional accounting with IT.

This has proved to be a major success. Nigel still maintains his own IT system, whilst combining this hobby with his fascination of all aspects of accountancy, auditing and taxation.

He has been a Sage dealer since about 1990 and has a full working knowledge of lots of other accounting software.

The majority of clients find it difficult to justify employing a full time Financial Director, however, by utilising Nigel’s skills most topics can be dealt with effectively. By surrounding himself with a small skilled team of dedicated assistance the practice can give excellent service in almost all aspects of business, not just finance.
