THE IPA BEST OF THE BEST

In 1994, IPA began naming the top 50 Best of the Best Firms, selected exclusively on their performance in specific key areas of management, growth and strategic vision. IPA also names the 10 Best of the Best Firms under $10 million and 5 firms in Canada. These Best of the Best firms are some of the highest-performing public accounting firms across North America.

THE BEST OF THE BEST

Firms of all sizes are eligible for the Best of the Best annual list. IPA’s proprietary scoring system removes imbalances that could be attributed to the size of a firm or its proximity to a major metropolitan area. The result is the clearest picture yet of the best-managed firms and their common characteristics.

These high-performing firms are highlighted in articles, practice management reports, along with in-depth interviews throughout the year.
