Our reputation

Well established and confidential

Rickards was founded as a firm of chartered accountants in 1980, winning an audit contract from Scottish Television. This proved to be the springboard to a fast growing specialisation in commercial audits and established Rickards in the media market. By the 1990s  we led the way for audits in commercial television. Press, radio and online media sectors followed.
