The small firm that scoops this award will have clearly articulated how they achieved growth in client numbers and revenue or profitability.
They will be able to show the highest professional standards in their work and rising client satisfaction, either through NPS or similar satisfaction ratings. In terms of clients, the panel will seek evidence from firms of collaborative working, new services and successful and time-saving initiatives, that have enhanced the two-way relationship.
Additionally, practices will need to demonstrate staff satisfaction, clever use of technology and astute business strategy. Judges are also looking for practices run distinctively and innovatively compared to similar sized practices. Excelling in performance in the face of adversity is another factor that will be weighed by the panel.
All UK accountants, UK accountancy firms (of any size and nature) who are a customer of IRIS Software Group (using IRIS, Keytime, PTP or KashFlow branded products) are welcome to enter the award.
