Ulverston firm of accountants J F Hornby & Co are celebrating again after being short listed for ‘accountancy firm of the year’ in the annual British Accountancy Awards. It’s the second time in 3 years the family owned business have been short listed at the annual event which is held at The Brewery in London.
The awards recognise excellence in the accountancy profession over the last 12 months. Managing Director of Hornby’s Paul Hornby said this is a fantastic way to end an incredible year. The business has seen an unprecedented amount of new clients this year and have expanded their offices to accommodate new members of the accounts team. The firm now employ over 30 staff and have appointed two new directors to ensure clients continue to receive a first class service. Accountants Beverley Moyes and Tom Southward have been with the firm for 13 and 8 years respectively and share the same vision of the firm in giving an un-paralleled service to clients but in a friendly and relaxed environment. They join the firm’s founder John Hornby and current managing director Paul Hornby in running the practice. Paul says a big reason for the firm’s success is being loyal to their local routes and trying to make a difference and help local businesses. Paul adds the reputation of their accountants not only in the profession but within the local area is second to none. The firm must wait now until the 24th of November to find out the results.
