About Oury Nicholsons

The Early Days

Oury Nicholsons & Co has its roots in 1935, when Walter Holmes Oury FCA and Major Reid decided to make their mark on the accounting world. Although Major Reid's pub visits led to a parting of ways, Walter Oury persevered, laying the foundation for what would become a trusted name in accounting.

The Next Generation

Fast forward to the 1960s, and the next generation of Ourys joined the firm. Richard and Brian, Walter's sons, continued the legacy, each eventually establishing their own practices. Brian's share became Nicholsons Accountants, which has now evolved into Oury Nicholsons & Co LLP, a modern, fully digitised practice.

In 1986 Brian decided to branch out on his own and established the current practice located in Gerrards Cross and one in Maidenhead.

Since then Brian has consulted extensively to clients located both locally and abroad. He has had multiple negotiations with HMRC for his clients and has saved them considerable expense primarily on income and inheritance taxes. Brian is also an experienced property developer working, both for his own account and advising clients on best practices and appropriate tax structures.
