Accountancy Age Awards 2010 Tax Team of the Year - Sagars

awards 2010 logo“Tax is best done when well explained,” said one of the judges in crowning  Sagars as the Accountancy Age Tax Team of the Year 2010.

The Yorkshire-based firm of 71 staff punches far above its weight, using the personal touch to win clients.

The firm says its core strategy relies on improving the quality and delivery of services so that its clients and contacts become advocates and spread the word.

The fact that 93% of the firm’s new work in 2009 came directly from referrals, shows its strategy is working.

Sagars also took the ambitious move of eliminating partner offices to ensure team members are grouped to learn from each other and interact to the benefit of clients.

“Financial success is important but we’re absolutely clear that ethics and professionalism should prevail over the temptation to win work at any cost,” Sagars said.

This promise is another reason the judges went for Sagars this year.
