A small accountancy firm in Worcestershire is celebrating after winning a prestigious national industry award. ‘The Accountancy Office’ beat off competition from four other strong contenders to win Sole Practitioner of the Year in the 2020 UK Accounting Excellence Awards. Based in Evesham, the firm provides a full accounting function to small businesses including bookkeeping, accounts and tax returns and supports many clients with finance director services.
The annual awards are hosted by Accounting Web, the industry’s leading online publication. For the past 10 years the coveted awards have recognised and celebrated the firms, individuals and software vendors which drive the profession forwards and are judged by some of the industry’s leading experts. This year the event was held virtually online due to COVID-19 restrictions and the winners announced on 2 December.
The ’Sole Practitioner of the Year’ award was a new category and open to accounting firms who have one Partner/Director, with or without supporting staff. The judges said: “This was a really impressive entry from a really impressive firm. The Accountancy Office boasts a great range of services offered to clients – thinking much wider than the traditional firm. With an outstanding Net Promotor Score, this firm has ‘got it right’ for themselves and their clients”. In 2018 the company won Client Service Firm of the Year in the Accounting Excellence Awards.
Sarah Sallis, Founder and Director said “I am thrilled to have won two prestigious industry awards in two years. I am quite sure that no other firm has achieved that locally especially after such a terribly challenging year. To bring another national award to my hometown of Evesham is amazing. I would like to thank our wonderful clients for their continued support, without them we would not be able to achieve what we do. With another award under our belt, I am really looking forward to what 2021 may bring”.
