Leading island based accountancy practice PKF-FPM Accountants with offices in Northern Ireland and Ireland, continued an amazing 2017, when they won the prestigious Mid-Tier Firm of Year Award at the glittering British Accountancy Awards Gala Banquet Ceremony which took place last night (13 October 2017) at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel, in London.
The Mid-Tier Firm of the Year Award is awarded to the firm with turnover between £3m and £25m that demonstrates how the firm has added significant value to its clients and across all service areas. It was acknowledged that PKF-FPM provided a range of exceptional services, which had been fundamental in enabling their clients to achieve their business goals. It was noted, as champions of evolutionary change, PKF-FPM embrace the ever-changing economic landscape, challenging traditional perceptions and equipping clients to minimise threats, maximise opportunities and advance from reaction and weakness to pro-activity and strength, positioning clients for success.
The Newry headquartered practice was the only firm to have been shortlisted in three national categories at the British Accountancy Awards, the other two categories being: Tax Team of the Year and Accounting Innovation Project of the Year. The Awards Ceremony, hosted by Mock the Week star, Hugh Dennis, attracted upwards of 1,000 guests, including high profile leaders from the UK business and accountancy sectors.
PKF-FPM Accountants (formally FPM Chartered Accountants) were established in 1991 and the practice is now a member of PKF International (PKFI), one of the leading international accountancy networks, which was named the “fastest growing major accountancy network in the UK and Ireland’ in 2016.
Earlier this year, PKF-FPM won the Large Practice of the Year Award and the Overall Practice of the Year Award at the Irish Accountancy Awards, thus uniquely, are currently recognised as Best in Class by their peers in both Britain and Ireland.
