ICAEW and Northern Society of Chartered Accountants support these awards as we believe that to encourage organisations to strive for rigour and excellence, we must recognise and reward those who currently provide the highest quality of service, adding significant competitive advantage. We congratulate all of the individuals and organisations that were shortlisted for the awards this year.

Tait Walker were the winners of Independent Firm of the Year and Harlands Accountants were announced as the runners-up.  The judges’ view was that both the winners and runners-up “were both outward looking and had talked about their clients and their services during the panel interviews”.

The winner of the category was, in judges’ opinion, “clearly a Firm with a solid foundation and a depth of experience and expertise. They demonstrated good evidence of innovation, energy, enthusiasm and fresh thinking with an impressive focus on team building. The judges were also impressed with their great use of technology including their ‘home-grown’ software.”

They are supported by all the major accountancy institutes, and Northern Society of Chartered Accountants and ICAEW have been pleased to support the awards since their inception and by being category sponsor of Independent Firm of the Year.
