Accounting Excellence Awards 2023: we won Tax Team of the Year!

We’re thrilled to be the winners of Tax Team of the Year at the Accounting Excellence Awards 2023!

We were also proud that Sam Inkersole was a finalist for Breakout Star of the Year.

The Accounting Excellence Awards, from AccountingWEB, recognise the achievements of UK accounting firms, individuals, teams and projects. All categories are judged by an outstanding line-up of experts and senior professionals covering a range of specialisms from within and outside the accounting community.

Tax Team of the Year

This category ‘seeks to celebrate the teams that have mastered self-assessment season or have navigated clients through the increasingly complex tax landscape … have demonstrated exceptional tax work and have added value to their clients.’

Being the winner in this category builds on our tax team’s achievements at the Taxation Awards 2023: winning Best Employer in Tax and being shortlisted for Best Single Office Tax Practice.

Breakout Star of the Year: Sam Inkersole

The Breakout Star category ‘celebrates the most talented and brightest professionals who have broken through over the past year and have had a measurable positive impact on their firm, clients or the wider profession.’

Sam became a senior manager in our tax team in April 2023. This shortlisting follows his Taxation’s Rising Star win at the Taxation Awards 2022, and his inclusion in the Accountancy Age 35 Under 35 2022.

Congratulations to the entire tax team on their well-earned recognition. And well done to our fellow winners and finalists across the accountancy sector, including our fellow B Corps Kreston Reeves, Triple Bottom Line Accounting, Telic, Kung Fu Accounting and Thrive Accountants. It was pleasure to celebrate with you at the Accounting Excellence Awards night on 3 October.
