Fab Four in UK top 100
Four members of DFK UK & Ireland are in the top 100 accountancy firms in the UK.
CBW, Wilson Wright, Shaw Gibbs and DSG feature in the Top 50+50 Accountancy Firms 2018 which champions excellence in the profession by ranking firms by total UK fee income.
The industry-recognised list put CBW at 46th with UK fee income at £15 million, Wilson Wright at 74th with £8 million, Shaw Gibbs at 94th with £5.83 million and DSG at 96th with £5.72 million.
Peter Winter, chairman of DFK UK & Ireland, said: “All four firms are to be congratulated on being ranked in the top 100 accountancy firms in the UK and as an association, we should proud.
“DFK members are reporting strong growth rates which are certainly good or above the national average and if we were to aggregate the results of DFK members as an association, we would probably be ranked in the top 15.
“Three of the four, namely CBW, Wilson Wright and Shaw Gibbs, have joined DFK since 2015 and this demonstrates that the newer firms are adding further value to the association.
“Overall it shows that we have significant firms within the association and is recognition that we are strongly placed. This was reflected at our recent annual conference in Glasgow which was our most successful in terms of attendance and engagement.”
The annual league table is compiled by leading industry publication Accountancy Age using data submitted by firms from the last financial year.
