Robert Maclaren FCA MBA

I am a Qualified Accountant in Edinburgh who also covers Livingston and Musselburgh

AIMS do what you expect an accountant to do and
we do it well

Tax, Accounting and Bookkeeping is time consuming and there are so many rules and regulations even us accountants despair at times. But as a business owner you can’t get away from these and they are simply tasks that need to be done and done well. The upside is I am a Edinburgh based accountant who can look after your Edinburgh business accounts and am professionally qualified to offer all sorts of accounting and tax advice for your Edinburgh Business.

Whilst I am based in Edinburgh I also cover the areas of Livingston and Musselburgh and can assist with all your accounts and tax requirements, leaving you to concentrate on running and developing your business.

I don’t charge by the hour and all fees are agreed in advance so you know exactly what you’re paying for. And because I am local to you I will come to you for a free no obligation meeting - you are under no obligation to take it further.


Robert has diverse experience gained from practice, operating his own business, many years working for multinational companies and advising SMEs under the auspices of Heriot-Watt University. Trained with Arthur Young (now Ernst & Young) MBA from INSEAD.

As an AIMS Accountant, he now acts for many clients providing them with a unique blend of financial, taxation and general management advice all delivered personally.

I believe in straight and direct communication

Forget the jargon - it’s important that you understand how the services I offer will impact your business, so don’t worry if you are not familiar with all of them. I will assess your business needs and put together a bespoke service that you understand and allows you to benefit from my years of professional accounting experience.
