The 2018 Accounting Excellence Awards

The UK’s brightest and best accounting firms gathered in London last week to celebrate the eighth year of AccountingWEB’s coveted Accounting Excellence Awards. We were delighted to be invited to raise a glass of champagne in celebration of some fantastic achievements.

It was a fantastic evening, hosted by Countdown’s number-cruncher Rachel Riley and hailed as a chance to celebrate and showcase the “best of accountancy.”

Hundreds of firms enter the awards each year in a total of 10 categories, so we were thrilled to be finalists in four separate classes: Medium Practice, Specialist Team, Practice Growth and Innovative Firm.

In terms of this innovation, Claire Bennison from awards partner ACCA UK, commented that changes in technology “are undoubtedly creating a fast-paced landscape, one that’s full of opportunity for accountants who adopt an innovative approach. I am delighted to see some of these accountants recognised at these awards this evening.”

We thrive on innovation, so were very pleased to be recognised for the many projects and strategies we employ to benefit our clients.  Here are just a few examples:

  • With the onset of Making Tax Digital (MTD), we’ve set up a specialised bookkeeping arm to help clients “go digital.”
  • Our comprehensive presence across social media includes our own YouTube channel, Nordens TV, where we interview specialists in business areas that benefit our clients.
  • Our distinct Strategic Department has its own website, branding and social media presence. This service focuses on clients’ dreams (yes, really!) and goals, providing a bespoke service that includes specific workflow and target technology and restructured internal systems.

Our congratulations to this year’s winners!  You can see a selection of our awards by clicking here.

Founder - Dataphone

Having worked with Nordens over the last 5 years, not only to look after my annual accounts but they have also provided outstanding professional advice. They have guided me through a Company share buyback with clear and objective advice. We have also been using Nordens strategic services for a couple of years, which has helped bring about significant improvements that exceeded my expectations. With experience of working with several local accountants over my 29 years in business, I’m very pleased with the service I have received from Nordens.

  Why I Founded Nordens
Accounting 2 You

In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier. The difficult part, for me, was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
