Brookson named in top 100 accountants

Wednesday 31 July 2013

Since 1995 Brookson has been offering specialist accounting services to contractors, freelancers and self-employed professionals. It seems that these years of experience have helped to cement a strong reputation, as the firm is delighted to have been named among the top accountancy firms in the UK.

Accountancy Age’s latest Top 50+50 Survey placed Brookson at number 63, one of only three firms to be included in the list who specialise in providing accountancy services to people who work for themselves. Although this is four places below last year’s ranking of 59, it’s still a fantastic achievement to be named among the top accountants in the UK this year.

“We’re absolutely delighted to have been included in Accountancy Age’s top 50+50 list once again,” said Martin Hesketh, managing director at Brookson. “Since 1995 we’ve been offering accounting support and advice to self-employed professionals and it’s great to be recognised for the difference we make to our clients.

“I believe that our continued commitment to delivering an excellent customer experience and all-inclusive services coupled with our pioneering technology has kept us as one of the leading specialist contractor accountants. That’s how we’ve managed to assist more than 60,000 people over the years. Being named as one of the country’s top 100 firms is testament to our success.”

From IR35 reviews to umbrella employment advice, Brookson offers a complete range of services to help its customers stay on top of their finances from beginning to end. A proactive and all-inclusive approach covers every aspect of working as a sole trader or limited company or even as an employee of our umbrella company to give customers complete peace of mind.

When contractors need to keep an eye on their finances themselves, Brookson’s cutting-edge technology makes sure that they have access to all their important information 24 hours a day. With the groundbreaking Connect online portal updated every day, customers can submit expenses, look over their tax position, track invoices and check how much money they can take out at any time.

But beyond keeping the books balanced, self-employed professionals can even find help with legal advice, savings and pension planning through an extensive network of partners in a number of different financial services.

And of course, customers can be sure of the highest professional standards, since Brookson is one of the founding members of the Freelancer and Contractor Services Association.

Mr Hesketh believes that all of these factors were crucial in earning Brookson a place on the list, which Accountancy Age says presents a mixed picture of the industry as a whole.

Although the top 50 firms managed to pull in a combined income of £10.95 billion, up from £10.3 billion last year, almost all of that growth came from the fabled Big Four. Fee income between these four largest companies rose from £7.73 billion to £8.35 billion. The whole of the top ten remained unchanged from last year.

Across the top 100 a total of 20 posted double-digit growth in their fee income, 42 said they had seen single-digit growth and 38 reported that their fee performance either remained flat or had worsened over the year.
