The firm was named Best Accountancy Firm for Smaller Companies at the annual Finance Director’s Excellence Awards which took place at the London Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square.
The award, which was presented to Baker Tilly for services to companies with turnovers of below £25m, was based on the responses to a satisfaction survey sent to more than 1700 finance directors in UK firms. Baker Tilly beat off stiff competition from rival firms by achieving a client satisfaction score of 8.9 out of 10.
The FD Excellence awards programme for the UK's best finance directors and their service providers was created by Real Business in 2004 and is held in association with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), and supported by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).
Commenting on the award win, Kirsty Sandwell, Managing Partner at Baker Tilly’s Gatwick office said:
‘Getting to know our clients so that we can provide them with the best service possible is extremely important to us, we are absolutely delighted to win this award which recognises the hard work of our partners and staff both in the Gatwick office and in our offices right across the UK. What’s particularly special about winning this award is that it’s decided on by finance directors themselves, so it’s great to get such a positive endorsement from our industry counterparts.’
