The recognition honors 60 CPA firms across the country for their overall superior financial and operational performance on more than 70 IPA criteria. The right combination of planning, strategy and execution distinguish Best of the Best firms from among more than 500 firms that participated in IPA’s 25th Annual Survey and Analysis of firms.

Are they offering specialized services to their clients? Are they planning now for a new leadership team in the future?”
