How do your accountancy service shape up? Are your accountants experts in dealing with owner managed businesses and do they have the credetials to prove it?
Here at Haines Watts we’re proud of our expertise and we once again have reason to celebrate as we’ve been crowned Accountancy Firm of the Year for SME’s at the recent FD’s Excellence Awards. Haines Watts have also previously won the Auditor of the Year Award for SME’s for the last two years running, making this our 3rd year of winning one of these prestigious awards. Haines Watts are the only firm to have won awards in three consecutive years.
The Awards celebrate the work of FDs and supporting firms in financial management, including accountants, who contribute to the success of British business and sustainable growth. The awards were hosted by Real Business and held in association with the ICAEW and supported by the CBI.
What makes this award particularly important to us here at Haines Watts is that the award was voted for by more than 1,000 Finance Directors, business owners and key finance decision makers in our target SME market. It’s this type of award that matters because it’s voted for by real business people not some academic panel of experts.
The respondents were asked to rate their auditor on service; value for money; ability to flag up risks; and quality of audit partners. Haines Watts emerged with the highest score from the survey beating some of our main competitors from Baker Tilly, BDO, Deloitte, Grant Thornton and KPMG.
To every partner and staff member in Haines Watts can I congratulate you on doing an outstanding job for our clients day in day out and contributing towards us winning this award. To our clients that voted for Haines Watts, I thank you for your confidence in us and hope to continue to support your businesses in the coming year.
