Local chartered accountancy firm, MHA Monahans has followed its recent successes by winning the ‘Large Firm of the Year’ award at the IRIS Customer Awards.
This accolade is the second that the firm has won in recent months, having won the category of ‘Practice Growth Firm of the Year’ at the Accounting Excellence Awards just a few weeks ago.
Launched this year to celebrate IRIS Accountancy Solutions’ 40th anniversary, the IRIS Customer Awards aim to celebrate best practice and recognise the individuals and accountancy practices “thriving in the digital economy.”
The awards were open to all of IRIS’ customers across the country, ranging from small business owners and payroll technicians to chartered firms operating nationally.
MHA Monahans was awarded the title of ‘Large Firm of the Year,’ a category open to accountancy firms with nine or more partners. The award judging criteria looked across several areas and reviewed how the firm has evolved beyond compliance services to “capitalise on new service opportunities in the digital economy.”
The judges remarked that MHA Monahans displayed a “real focus” on staff with 33 trainees who are working towards professional qualification.
They added: “Growth has been strong for this firm, supported by bringing in a specialist partner to drive growth from existing clients.”
Steve Fraser, partner at MHA Monahans, said: “Over the past few years, MHA Monahans has been focussed on growth and developing the services we offer to our clients in order to add value and concrete our role as trusted business advisors.
“We have worked with IRIS for a number of years and their software has been an integral part to us providing reliable and smooth services. To have won this award, hot on the heels of our Practice Growth title, is great recognition of the extra lengths we go to be more than just accountants to our clients.”
MHA Monahans has branches across the south west in Bath, Chippenham, Frome, Glastonbury, Melksham, Swindon, Taunton and Trowbridge.
