Whitley Stimpson climbs the rankings within the Top 100 UK accounting firms

Oct 6, 2017

Whitley Stimpson has been officially ranked as one of the country’s top accountancy firms for the fourth year running by the prestigious Accountancy Age 50+50 survey. 

Released on 4th October, the 2017 Accountancy Age Top 50+50 issue features the Top 100 Accountancy firms in the UK and is recognised as the UK’s most comprehensive breakdown of accountancy sector performance.  To achieve the national honor, Whitley Stimpson’s revenue and growth were measured against accounting firms throughout the country. 

Over the past year we have encountered Brexit negotiations, a snap election, ongoing political tensions and the ever-present disruptive nature of technology, all of which have thrown up challenges and created opportunities for the accounting industry. 

The 2017 rankings show remarkable stability within the Top 20 firms.  Across the rankings firms have demonstrated significant growth with regard to total fee income, with 95 firms registering positive figures, indicating that there has been no slowdown in UK firms’ ability to thrive in the current environment. 

Whitley Stimpson’s substantial growth is further endorsed by climbing the ranks a further five places to 84th place in the league table, a clear two positions higher than its closest competitor. 

Managing director Jonathan Walton said: “Our firm has seen tremendous growth over the last four years which is testament to the high service standards delivered by our staff and our loyal client base. We would like to say a big thank you to our staff for helping us to retain our title of leading accountancy firm. We take great pride in the fact that we employ and retain the very best talent in the industry and work in close partnership with our clients.” 

Consistently ranked in the top 100 list, Whitley Stimpson has offices in Banbury, Bicester, Witney and High Wycombe and has received many accolades already this year.  In March director Val Buzzard won Business Woman of the Year at the Banbury Women in Business (BWIB) Awards and Payroll Manager Tracy Gill has been shortlisted for the Reward Strategy awards 2017 in the category of Best Manager. The firm has also been shortlisted in the category for Established Business at the Cherwell Business Awards and AccountingWEB Practice Excellence Awards 2017 in the category for best large practice.
