The Swindon office of national accountants Haines Watts is celebrating the firm winning the title of Accountancy Firm of the Year – SMEs at the annual FDs Excellence Awards.
The award comes on the back of Haines Watts gaining the Auditor of the Year accolade for the past two years – making it the first firm ever to win an award in three consecutive years.
The FDs Excellence Awards recognise the support given to Britain’s finance community by professional service providers and are based on the results of an annual survey in which finance directors and financial decision-makers give their opinions.
The prestigious awards ceremony at London’s Grosvenor Square Hotel hosted by Real Business magazine in association with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and supported by the CBI.
Haines Watts beat competition from major UK firms such as KPMG, Grant Thornton, BDO, Baker Tilly
Haines Watts Swindon managing partner Mike Lloyd said: “It’s great to see Haines Watts win such a prestigious award.
“This type of award really matters to us because it’s voted for by business people and not by an academic panel of experts.
“We are proud of all of our staff who do an outstanding job for our clients day to day and who have contributed towards us winning this award.”
The firm has more than 60 offices around the UK and 35,000-plus clients.
