Who are we

We are a leading firm of Scottish Chartered Accountants and Insolvency Practitioners who still retain the traditional local presence and respect in the community on which the profession was based.

Historically we were part of a practice formed in Aberdeen by F A Ritson in 1909 but as the business developed parts have evolved into separate business entities. The current principal Bill Young, who has controlled the Nairn office business since 1979 withdrew from the original practice to set up a fresh firm in 2007 with the existing staff of 15. There are other previously associated businesses that share the historic Ritson name but there is now no other connection.

Whilst providing the full range of client services including accounting, payroll and bookkeeping support through Sage qualified trainers, the Nairn office evolved into the more unusual practice areas in particular taxation and insolvency where there is a need to tailor very client specific strategies and solutions where practical experience and knowledge base is at a premium to support the formal qualifications.

Bill Young has a degree in Accountancy and Finance from Heroit Watt University and memberships of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and the Association of Business Recovery Professionals.  He is also regulated to act as an Insolvency Practitioner is granted by ICAS, and as a Registered Auditor by ACCA.
