Lang Bennetts Chartered Accountants are finalists in the British Accountancy Awards South West Independent Firm of the Year category.

The firm, which has offices in Truro and Falmouth and employs more than 50 staff, is the only Cornwall-based company to have made the shortlist. Over ten judges, all senior figures in their industry, preside over a rigorous, three-stage, selection process – making the awards the most prestigious in their sector.

“We’re thrilled and delighted to have made the finals,” said Lang Bennetts partner Helen Hood. “We’ll be representing Cornwall too and that means a great deal to all of us. We’re very proud of all that our team achieves for our clients and the growth and development of the company as a whole. This achievement is testament to everyone’s hard work and enthusiasm.”

Described as celebrating ‘the impact that expertly designed and executed accountancy and finance strategies make to business performance and the bottom line’, this year’s awards will welcome over 750 guests to London’s Park Lane Hilton on 13 October when the winners will be announced.
