INSIDE Public Accounting is honored to continue the history of identifying, naming and analyzing the practices of the nation’s public accounting firms.
The “top half” of the IPA 100 (ranked by topline organic growth), averaged 11.7% growth as a group, up slightly from 10.5% in 2014.
The ten fastest-growing firms below are averaging an impressive 18.3% organic growth. Add in some strategic mergers, and that average jumps to almost 20% for the fastest-growing.
Growth among the group is coming from every area of the business – with traditional services, management consulting, wealth management, government contracting, specialized services for high-net-worth clients, tax credits, sales tax services, business management services and computer consulting leading the way.
As a group, growth in tax services outpaced audit and accounting services.
Six of the 10 firms employ a business development director. Additionally, seven of these firms employ a training director, ensuring that employees get up to speed as quickly and efficiently as possible to best serve clients and keep up with the growth.
