British Accountancy Awards 2013 Highly CommendedGoringe Accountants wins ‘Highly Commended’ accolade in the 2013 British Accountancy Awards

The prestigious British Accountancy Awards took place in London at the end of November and saw the team at Goringe Accountants win ‘Highly Commended’ in the category of Independent Firm of the Year, South East England. The awards seek to reward firms that have provided the highest quality of service to their clients, adding significant competitive advantage.

Since 2007, Founder and Managing Director, Nicky Goringe Larkin has focussed on exemplary service and customer contact to build her Reading- and London-based accountancy practice. By recruiting highly qualified and experienced staff, Nicky has grown the practice to a client base of 300+ businesses in every sector—from start ups to small groups of limited companies.

Nicky comments:

We’re delighted to have received this accolade. We are committed to excellence throughout our business.

Designed to pinpoint professional development and to highlight those who have demonstrated excellence in their profession during the last 12 months, the awards were judged against 6 key criteria: profitability/growth, professionalism, measurable success, innovation, people and responsibility.

Nicky continues:

We’re committed to continuous improvement in our systems, procedures, processes and methodologies. We search for better ways to do things so that we free up the time of our senior staff to visit our clients. By immersing ourselves in their worlds we are able understand who they are, where they struggle, and what their goals and dreams are. This client-facing time—which we believe is unique in a practice of our size—enables us to deliver an ever more excellent service to our clients. It is almost certainly this customer focus that led to our being recognised in this way.
