Worksop Chartered Accountants voted most innovative in the profession

A local firm is celebrating winning yet another major award, ranking them as the most innovative small firm of Chartered Accountants in the country.

John Harrison and Company, based in Worksop received the award for the The Most Innovative Sole Practitioner of the Year in the UK from the 2020 Innovation Group at its annual conference in Birmingham.

2020 Innovation is a leading organisation providing innovative solutions for progressive accountants and tax professionals worldwide, that celebrates success and achievement across the accounting profession with particular emphasis on innovation and creativity.

The conference was attended by 400 accountants from the most forward thinking practices in the country along with Sir Clive Woodward as a special guest speaker.

John Harrison and Company’s award was awarded for the powerful Financial Management System they have created which provides a ‘back office’ finance department for owner managed businesses.

It has several accounting software systems linked together which automates the whole process of purchase invoice recording and supplier payments, sales invoice generation and debt collecting, gives direct daily steaming of bank transactions straight into the accounts software and delivers easy to understand financial accounts directly to a user’s smart phone. It slashes the cost of accounting for owner managed businesses and at the same time delivers financial information directly to the business owner in real time.

The system is supported by a network of specialist professionals working in every financial area that a business owner might need such as asset finance, commercial finance, business cost reduction, insurance, retirement planning, wealth management, commercial law, employment law and health and safety.

The systems is so comprehensive and accurate that John Harrison and Company provide year end accounts and tax returns free of charge to service users.

John Harrison, founder of the accountancy firm said:  “We recognised that business owner’s place little value on accounts that are prepared months after the trading year has ended, so we set about creating a system that slashes costs and is affordable to businesses of all sizes.

“The system adds considerable value for our clients as it enables us to work with them on a day-to-day basis improving profits and building better businesses.

“We now have a range of services which has taken us from compliance to reliance and prove to be a very valuable member of our clients’ team. Our new services are in high demand – the extra efficiency that we have achieved has enabled us to provide compliance services, that our clients attribute no value to, absolutely free of charge.

John Harrison and Company were the firm favourites to win the award after being runners up last year and already winning a whole host of international awards for its innovative system this year.

John Harrison concludes: “To receive this award from 2020 which is an organisation devoted to creating innovation with members including the most forward thinking practices in the United Kingdom is just truly remarkable!”
