Essex and London based accountants, Raffingers, has been shortlisted for Firm of the Year at the IRIS Customer Awards. Partner Barry Soraff has also been shortlisted for Partner of the Year.
2017 was a record year for Raffingers with the firm recording its largest turnover to date. Despite the accountancy market changing and the entry of new competitors, Raffingers has positioned itself successfully as a strategic partner to clients, helping ambitious business owners achieve their goals.
Over the last 12 months Raffingers has expanded its Cloud Accounting department and offering, developed a knowledge hub for SMEs and innovated new services to support businesses in all aspects of their development and growth. All of which has contributed to the firm exceeding its client’s expectations and engaging new businesses.
The IRIS Customer Awards was launched this year to recognise accountancy practices and individuals thriving in the digital economy. The awards celebrate best practice and recognises those accountants that have capitalised on new service opportunities.
Gary Inglis, Managing Partner at Raffingers, stated, “We are delighted to be shortlisted for IRIS Firm of the Year Large. The team has worked incredibly hard in the last 12 months to deliver outstanding services to our clients, as well as develop new opportunities.
Indeed, the market is changing but we have embraced this and used it as an opportunity to improve our existing value proposition.”
Barry Soraff, Partner at Raffingers said, “I wasn’t aware that the team had put me forward for Partner of the Year. It is a complete surprise, but I am extremely grateful. Since the beginning clients have always been at the heart of everything I do, and nothing gives me greater satisfaction than helping a client through a particularly difficult time or seeing a client succeed. Thank you for the nomination.”
Sion Lewis, CEO of IRIS Accountancy Solutions said, “The IRIS Customer Awards celebrate best practice across many areas of an accountancy business, as firms evolve beyond compliance services to capitalise on growth opportunities in the new digital era. We are delighted Raffingers has been shortlisted for these awards.”
The IRIS Customer Awards take place on Tuesday 9 October at Twickenham Stadium.
