London and Essex based Chartered Certified Accountants, Raffingers Stuart, has been shortlisted for ‘Mid-Tier Firm of the Year’ and Barry Soraff, Partner at Raffingers Stuart, has been nominated for ‘Practitioner of the Year’ at the 2015 British Accountancy Awards. Hosted by Accountancy Age, The British Accountancy Awards celebrates quality in the accountancy sector; the awards “pinpoint professional development and highlight those that have demonstrated excellence in their profession during the last 12 months”.
Raffingers Stuart has seen substantial growth over the past few years, moving up seven places on the Accountancy Age’s Top 50+50 Firms, exceeding their previous year’s billings by 30% and continuing to deliver outstanding client service. As a result, the firm had been shortlisted for ‘Mid-Tier Firm of the Year’, a contest for UK practices with a turnover of £3m to £25m. Alongside this award, Barry Soraff will be competing against six other candidates for the ‘Practitioner of the Year’ accolade, which recognises individuals who have provided an exceptional service to their firm and clients.
Lee Manning, Partner at Raffingers Stuart, stated, “For the last 21 years Barry has continually gone above and beyond for his clients and the firm. Without Barry’s undeniable passion and immeasurable contribution, we would not be the growing firm that we are today. It is satisfying to see that Barry’s contribution to the profession is now being acknowledged. Barry Soraff, Partner at Raffingers Stuart stated: “It is a complete honour to be shortlisted for one of the most recognised awards within the accountancy sector and I am extremely humbled. Also, Raffingers Stuart being shortlisted for the ‘Mid-Tier Firm of Year’ award is absolutely amazing and a true testament to everyone’s hard work at the firm. At Raffingers Stuart, we have always strived for greatness and it is extremely gratifying that our hard work is being recognised and paying off.”
The Raffingers Stuart team look forward to The British Accountancy Awards 2015, which will take place on Tuesday 24th November at the Brewery in London.
