Third consecutive win in national accountancy awards for Swindon firm

By Anita Jaynes on May 05, 2014

The Swindon office of Haines Watts Accountancy is celebrating success, having won Accountancy Firm of the Year – SMEs, at the annual FDs Excellence Awards. The award comes on the back of having won Auditor of the Year for the past two years.

The awards recognise the service providers that support Britain’s finance community using the results of an annual survey in which FDs and financial decision-makers recorded their opinion.

The prestigious awards ceremony was held in Grosvenor Square, London and hosted by Real Business in association with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and supported by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).

Haines Watts beat competition from other UK firms such as KPMG, Grant Thornton, BDO, Baker Tilly and Deloittes. Mike Lloyd, Managing Partner at Haines Watts in Swindon said: “It’s great to see Haines Watts win such a prestigious award. This type of award really matters to us because it’s voted for by business people and not by an academic panel of experts.”

Mike added: “It’s fantastic that we are the first firm ever to have won an award in three consecutive years. We are proud of all of our staff who do an outstanding job for our clients day to day and who have contributed towards us winning this award.”

Haines Watts Swindon office is based in Old Station House, Station Approach on Newport Street.
