Xero declares Thorne Widgery as a finalist at upcoming awards

One of the world’s leading online accounting platforms, Xero, has declared our firm as a finalist for its upcoming awards.

Celebrating some of the UK’s most innovative accountancy firms, the Xero Awards United Kingdom & Ireland 2023 are a highlight of the profession’s calendar.

We have been named as a finalist in the Total Xero Award category. This recognises accountants that have made Xero part of their business’ DNA.

Judges were impressed by our unwavering dedication to using Xero and our development of unique solutions to support clients.

In particular, we have been leading the way in the development of online accounting solutions for schools, academies and colleges with X for Education software.

Now in use by hundreds of schools across the nation, this system developed using our considerable technical expertise, is helping educators take advantage of the time-saving automation and real-time access to the financial information that Xero offers.

Sam King, Head of Xero and XFE, said: “Xero has altered the way that accountancy practices work, and we are proud of our role as champions for this platform.

“Not only have we helped lots of businesses to implement Xero, but through our innovative developments we have expanded the reach of Xero to many more organisations.”

We were early adopters of cloud accounting and are now experts in this area, having helped hundreds of clients to implement the latest systems from our offices in Hereford, Ludlow and Shrewsbury.

We will find out whether we have won the Total Xero Award at a ceremony in London on Wednesday, 19 April.

Daniel Crowther, our CEO, added: “We are honoured to be included in the shortlist and regardless of whether or not we come home with a trophy later this year, it represents the outstanding work of the whole team. We couldn’t be prouder!”
