2018 has been a record year for Lang Bennetts Chartered Accountants with client numbers growing by almost 25 per cent and staff increasing by more than 10 per cent.

2018 has also seen the firm in the media spotlight, having been selected as finalists in the British Accountancy Awards for the second consecutive year and, for the first time, as finalists in both the National Apprenticeship Awards and the Western Morning News Business Awards.

With ongoing emphasis on supporting continuing professional development, 2018 has seen former apprentices Kate Cooke and Natalie Lowe qualify – Kate as a chartered accountant and Natalie as a chartered certified accountant. Four apprentices – Joe Hayes, Shakira Thomas, Jack Beech and Kieran Trewhella – have also successfully completed their training.

“It has been a very exciting 12 months for us and we’re delighted with not only the accolades but, even more importantly, with the growth we’ve achieved through working hard for our clients and ensuring their prosperity,” said partner Helen Hood. “The reputation of any company relies firmly on doing what it does well and I’m very proud of our team who continually strive to go the extra mile.

“Our aim is always to provide timely, proactive advice and I’m especially delighted with the feedback we get. We understand how important it is for clients to trust us to act in their best interests and to be able to talk in confidence whenever they need to. The amazing expertise we have in our growing tax department is also much appreciated by the businesses we work with.”

“Outside of work, we’re delighted to have taken part in team events like Race for Life, Dragon Boats and Roc 5k to raise money for charity and are pleased to annually support our local foodbank.”

Lang Bennetts now have 56 staff working in their Truro and Falmouth-based offices. For more information, visit the website
