AIMS do what you expect an accountant to do and

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 Newark based accountant who can look after your Newark business accounts and am professionally qualified to offer all sorts of accounting and tax advice for your Newark Business.

Whilst I am based in Newark I also cover the areas of Grantham, Lincoln, Southwell and Sleaford 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.


Nick is a qualified Chartered Accountant running his own practice from an office on Fernwood Business Park just outside Newark for clients in the Newark, Grantham and Lincoln areas.

We deal with all aspects of work for our clients ranging from bookkeeping, VAT and payroll work through to year-end accounts preparation and tax planning. We work with clients to help them develop their business and achieve their goals. Nick's wide knowledge of, and experience within, the Small to Medium Size business sector enables Nick and his team to offer clients the proactive and personal service that they require.

We can also offer an online accounting system that provides you with an up to date position of (a) year and month to date profitability and (b) your current bank statement balance from anywhere with an internet connection.  This is particularly useful for business owners who wish to keep on top of their finances.

To put it simply, our goal is to minimise your tax liability and relieve you of the worries of dealing with the accounting and tax issues relating to you and your business. This then leaves you to concentrate on what you do best - running your business.

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.

What my clients say

“When we started our small business we were recommended to use a fairly large group of accountants.  Although efficient, we soon became afraid to ask questions due to the invoice that would surely follow.  Then we found Nick,a qualified accountant who would give as much time as required, for a fixed monthly charge, and local enough for face to face visits.  We have been delighted with Nick's support.”

R Redman - Grantham

“We would like to thank Nick Totham from Aims for all our accountancy needs. The agreed fee, paid monthly is a great idea and works well. Nick is very knowledgeable and covers everything we need. We would not hesitate to recommend AIMS to anyone.”

A. Makin - Newark

“I met and spoke to a number of accountants when I was looking for a service that was right for me.  Without any doubt, Nick was the one who put my mind at ease the most and made me feel that I was in safe hands.  He has been there to guide me and my business through these crucial early days, and I absolutely trust him and the advice that he has given.”

L.Atkinson - Newark

“We started our company in early 2006 and have always found Nick to be helpful, proactive and professional.  He is always efficient and available to give us good advice on a number of matters.  Also, agreeing our fee and paying by monthly standing order means we know totally what our costs are going to be without any nasty surprises.


S.Sandall - Wittering

“We have worked with AIMS since starting our Company in 2006 and the advice and support that Nick, our accountant has given us has been invaluable.  He is always helpful and approachable, nothing is too much trouble.  We would recommend the services of the AIMS group to anyone - thank you!”

K.Bowers - Grantham

“I’ve worked with Nick since I started my business 4 years ago. In addition to making year end a pain-free process, the advice and support I have received has proved invaluable. When I started my second business choosing an accountant was an easy decision. Highly recommended to new and existing SMEs.”

B.Foster - Newark

“Nick has been my company accountant and business adviser for the past 2 years. I have always found him to be most approachable and always willing to offer and provide wise and sound counsel on all aspects of small to medium business administration, growth, accountancy and taxation. Unlike some of his contemporaries, Nick recognises the need to provide an holistic business mentoring advice service as an inclusive part of his offering to his clients rather than just straightforward accountancy support. This sets him aside from his peers and competitors and I have no hesitation in strongly recommending his services.

A. Hildage - Newark

“Thanks for your help over these last two years with the trials and tribulations of managing my business, and especially providing me with a profit forecast and finalising my accounts early so I can get my mortgage - it is much appreciated.
