The Accounting Excellence Awards 2020 were targeted at recognising the ‘highs’ in the accounting and digital finance world over the last 12 months.
As a firm that is continuously looking for ways to grow and improve, the application process was a great opportunity for us to review how we’ve done in the last year, and a chance to identify the difficulties on the road ahead.
The multiple lockdowns and other restrictive measures introduced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic meant that the awards night was hosted virtually for the first time on Wednesday 2nd December and proved to be an overall success.
Shortlisted this year for three awards (Digital Firm, Fast Track Firm, and Client Service), we were hopeful that we may be in with a chance to win at least one award. You can imagine how elated we were to come away from the evening sporting both Digital and Innovative Firm of the Year, and the Client Service Award.
As a digital accounting practice that prides itself on our dedication to client care and using technology to improve services, this is a really great end to a shocker of a year.

What the Judges said:
Digital and Innovative Firm of the Year
"Our judges said Inform have a clear sense of vision and direction. Here is a firm with clear buy in from the team that has translated into strong outcomes for clients and an excellent set of results."
Client Service Award
"In what was one of the most popular categories this year, the winner had to see off literally dozens of competitors. Our judges said Inform came out top by virtue of their clear service proposition and tech-powered focus on communication and training. The challenge of growth is understood and the strategy is clear."
