National audit and advisory firm Nexia SAB&T, has been recognised as the best accounting firm in the country. The accolade was granted by the SA Professional Services Awards sponsored by Sanlam and W. Consulting.
Professionals from various organisations were set to gather at a gala dinner in Montecasino Ball Room on the evening of 19 March 2020 to honour the best amongst them. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the SAPSA Awards were indefinitely postponed. The organisers of the event subsequently undertook to progressively announce the winners for the 2019/2020 edition prior to hosting a gathering for all finalists and guests. This marks the fifth edition of the Awards following a rigorous process of determining winners through strict criteria.
Janette Minnaar, the chair of the adjudication panel explained how the winners were determined.
The firm awards were based on the following criteria – business growth, customer service, technical excellence, contribution to the community, contribution to the profession, transformation record and commitment to ethics and professionalism. The criteria were not equally weighted, a strong showing in one category was sufficient to put the firm above the rest.
“Nexia SAB&T is an award-winning audit firm having scooped several accolades recently including winning the firm of the year in the Nexia International network and the High Growth Firm of the Year from Sage,” the judges remarked. “The firm also scooped awards from the Digital Accountancy Forum and PMR. Further, Nexia SAB&T scores highly for initiatives they have engaged in during the period under review, notably the launching of a Foundation to bedrock their support for the Reach for a Dream Foundation and their ground-breaking Herstory campaign that honours the professional woman.
