July 21, 2016

You’d think, with all the time we spend crunching numbers, that it’s not often we get a chance to mingle with others in our industry, never mind get recognised for the work we do. It’s, therefore, a pleasure to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for New Firm of the Year at the Practice Excellence Awards 2016!

Sponsored by FreeAgent, our go-to accounting software, the award honours companies that have been trading for 1-3 years, encompassing client care, business methodology, and an overall entrepreneurial vision. Since these factors are at the heart of what we do, it’s incredibly satisfying to gain such prestigious recognition in the industry.

Judge for yourself

Befitting of an evening with ‘excellence’ to its name, the event organisers have landed some top-class judges to choose the final winners. The panel consists of professional services coach and author, Heather Townsend; Karen Reyburn, who specialises in marketing accounts firms; and Mark Purdue from Thomson Reuters, to name a few.

The panel also features a host of representatives from AccountingWEB, a virtual community for accounting and finance professionals, and the organisers of the Awards. 16 judges in total make up the panel, ranging from business editors to SME development network directors.

Together, these individuals embody our core values – delivering accounts advice that’s informed, personal, and inclusive of anything our clients want. To qualify for entry, we had to submit hard evidence of the results we’ve achieved since Bright Ideas was founded; our shortlisted status speaks volumes for the attention to detail we apply to our clients.

Standing out from the crowd

While it’s fantastic to be on the shortlist for the Practice Excellence Awards, we never rest on our laurels. Our freelancer and contractor packages have been designed for independent professionals torn between different commitments, and we enjoy taking the burden off your shoulders wherever possible.

Furthermore, we’re always happy to help with issues such as tax submissions, expenses and bookkeeping, and a host of other considerations unique to this line of trade. It’s one of the reasons why we love FreeAgent so much: we want to work with you, to be by your side at a moment’s notice, double-checking everything’s up to scratch.

Again, we’re very pleased to be shortlisted for an important night in the industry calendar. The ceremony will be held on the 20th October – register your interest in receiving updates, and we’ll be sure to let you know how we get on too!

To explore more reasons why we’re the pick of the litter, call us on 0161 669 4221 or email today.
