Aston Shaw, the fastest growing accountancy firm in the Eastern region, are proud to announce that the firm has been shortlisted in two categories for the British Accountancy Awards 2015.
The British Accountancy Awards, now in their fifth year, are the most prestigious, competitive and widely entered of their kind – with high profile industry sponsors, including Sage, ACCA, QuickBooks and AccountancyAge. The awards look to recognise the top accounting firms across the UK and Aston Shaw are extremely proud to be shortlisted for both the ‘Independent Firm of the Year – East, England’ and the ‘Community Award’ categories.
Dominic Shaw, Director commented, “I am thrilled to see the firm receive recognition for its achievements with regards to our continued growth and commitment to service excellence. I am particularly pleased to see Aston Shaw also shortlisted for the Community Award, as we have worked hard to give something back and have a positive influence on the local community.”
In order to make the shortlist, the firm had to produce evidence of its profitability, growth, measurable success, professionalism, innovation, as well as showcasing its commitment to the welfare and support of employees and the wider community.
To be recognised in the Independent Firm of the Year category, Aston Shaw demonstrated strong evidence of adding significant client value through its trademark proactive, innovative and modern approach to client care, as well as displaying how the firm’s services have been crucial in enabling their clients to achieve and exceed their business goals.
The Community Award recognises the contribution Aston Shaw has made to the local community in East Anglia. The firm demonstrated this through a variety of initiatives, including:
- CSR Strategy – Since the beginning of 2015, Aston Shaw have successfully run monthly free drop in business advice sessions, open to anyone who wishes to discuss a new business idea or to receive advice on an existing business.
- Charity Efforts – Aston Shaw have also become heavily involved in charity activities since selecting EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices) as its charity for 2015. Numerous fundraising activities have been organised throughout the year – most notably, the recent skydive with 25 members of staff taking part and generating over £10,000 for the children’s charity.
The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony, which will take place on 24 November at The Brewery in central London.
