Brookson was born from a thought… ‘There must be a better way for contractors to manage their accounts’. Brookson was set up with the vision of creating an accountancy company with a difference – a firm passionate about meeting the needs of their customers through innovation and personal attention; these are values that the firm continue to uphold today!

IR35 LEGISLATION INTRODUCED
The introduction of IR35 legislation had serious implications for many Brookson customers. We worked closely with HMRC and implemented dramatic changes to our services that made sure our customers worked compliantly. This resulted in us launching our Umbrella offering.
PIONEERING IN TECH-BASED SERVICE
Brookson created it’s own system for contractors investing millions to provide real time accountancy for contractors through desktop followed by mobile. We were the first in our sector.
SUNDAY TIMES BEST BUSINESS TO WORK FOR
Brookson scored consistently well in two key areas; ‘leadership’ and ‘my team’. Almost 90% of employees laughed a lot with their team. Wellbeing scores were high, with the level of happiness and work-life balance (80%) bettered by just two of the 100 best SMEs.
