We took home two awards at the prestigious annual Accounting Excellence Awards winning both ‘Large Firm of the Year’ and ‘Tax Team of the Year’ awards.

It is the third year in a row and the fourth time in the last five years we have been named ‘Large Firm of the Year’ and the first time entering and winning the ‘Tax Team of the Year’ category.

In giving the awards, the judging panel were impressed that we are a “large firm that clients genuinely love working with”. The judges commended our adoption of sustainable development goals and innovation in our systems and processes and our “exemplary staff strategy”, with “considerable investment in training and wellbeing initiatives”.

The firm has a clear strategy defined by our purpose guiding clients, colleagues and communities to a brighter future and its vision.

We fought off stiff competition from some of the UK’s largest accountancy firms to win the ‘Large Firm of the Year’, which we have now won in 2022, 2021, 2020 and 2018, and ‘Tax Team of the Year’.

Nigel Fright, Managing Partner at Kreston Reeves, said, “These awards, one of which we have now won four times in the past five years, confirm that our approach to supporting our clients, communities and investing in our people during some of the toughest trading conditions in living memory is working. We are thrilled to have won this award again, everyone at Kreston Reeves should be immensely proud of this achievement, which is recognition of all the effort and dedication that they all continue to display.”

Daniel Grainge, Partner and Head of Tax at Kreston Reeves, adds, “We have a market-leading tax team advising individuals and businesses. We strive to ensure our clients have peace of mind that their tax affairs are looked after by experts they can trust across a comprehensive range of services including corporate, personal, trusts and estates, VAT, tax disputes and SDLT. To have those strengths recognised at the Accounting Excellence Awards is a credit to all the hard work of the team. The tax landscape continues to be complex, and our clients can take comfort in this award that they are being advised by the best.”
