Reading accountants are officially recognised for being an inspiration to the world
Reading accountants Kirkpatrick and Hopes have been named as one of the most inspiring accountancy practices in the world. They were awarded the accolade as a result of being selected for inclusion in the new book “The world’s most inspiring accountants” which was published on 27 April. Announcing their inclusion, chartered accountant Steve Pipe, the book’s author who led the research team said:
“Over a hundred thousand accountancy practices from across the world were eligible, but after a rigorous 18 month research process only 57 of them from 10 countries made the cut. And in fact Kirkpatrick and Hopes are the only firm in the area to feature in the book, which is an extraordinary achievement.
It is also a richly deserved accolade, because they really are making a profound difference to their clients, community and the wider world. For example, they have pioneered a new approach to business succession planning, used it to transform the lives of the families of many entrepreneurs (adding an extra million pounds to one of the family’s bank accounts in the process) and even written a book about it so that others can benefit in the same way.
Along with the other firms in the book, Kirkpatrick and Hopes are helping to raise the bar for accountants across the world: inspiring an entire profession, and showing it how to make more of a difference by serving clients better than ever before. And one thing is really clear… the world would be a much better place if more accountants were like them.”
“We are humbled and proud to be named as one of the world’s most inspiring accountants. We have always believed passionately in the role accountants play in creating a better world by helping to make businesses more successful, creating jobs and generating wealth. So it is wonderful to see our commitment to those things being recognised on a global stage.”
To celebrate their achievement Kirkpatrick and Hopes are offering readers who run their own business a “Financial Health Check”. A unique 60 point checklist which has already helped their Clients save thousands of pounds to their business and personal bank accounts.
